I have a macro that hides a number of controls after clicking a control called cmdLogout. However, I want cmdLogout to also hide as the macro executes. But this brings up an error because it cannot hide a control that has the focus. How do i remove the focus from the control so that it can be hidden?

On your form add a text box (txtDummy). It remains unbound (nothing in its control soutce), width = 0.

In Gotfocus event of txtDummy have:

txtName.visible = false
.
.
.
cmdLogout.visible = false
etc.

And in Click event of cmdLogout have:

Sub cmdLogout_Click()
.
.your existing code
.

Me!txtDummy.SetFocus
End Sub
