I have a main form f_gu_gdr_entry that has a phone number text box. When you enter a phone number and tab out or press enter an after update event is fired and the form populates. I am trying to have a command button (cmd_f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub_add) on a subform of (f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub) become visible and enabled. Right now when I run the search no error is returned however the button remains not visible and not enabled. I have listed the code below. Any help you can give me would be great. Thanks.

DoCmd.ApplyFilter "", "[Forms]![f_gu_gdr_entry]![txtmdnsearch]=[tblglobaldataroaming]![mdn]"
Forms!f_gu_gdr_entry!txtmdn = Forms!f_gu_gdr_entry!txtmdnsearch
DoCmd.GoToControl "txtregion"
If user.AccessID = 1 Or user.AccessID = 3 Or user.AccessID = 7 Or user.AccessID = 13 Then
Forms!f_gu_entry.f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub.Form.cmd_f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub_add.Visible = True
Forms!f_gu_entry.f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub.Form.cmd_f_gu_gdr_entry_country_sub_add.Enable = True
End If
