The built in Wizard can help you with that.  In form design open the tool box and make sure the Wizard tool is pressed in.  Select the Command Button tool and place a button on your form.  Follow the Wizard steps to create the desired buttons.

1.) Open your form in Design Mode
2.) Click the ToolBox icon on the forms Design ToolBar / MenuBar.  The ToolBox will open probably to the right of your form.
3.) On the ToolBox click the Controls Wizard button first.  This is the button with the magic wand.
4.) Select the Command Button tool then click in your form where you want to create a Command Button.
5.) The Command Button Wizard will open where you can select various actions to happen when the Command Button is pressed / clicked.
6.) Just follow the Wizard steps/instructions.  It's pretty straightforward.  You can create as many Command Buttons by repeating the steps.
