In VB6 (which you probably convert into VBA):

If cmdButon.Enabled Then
   'button is not grayed out
Else
   'button is grayed out
End If

To gray out:

cmdButton.Enabled = False

I agree with VBClassicGuy

type "enabled" in your code and hit f1 to see the VB Help File for .Enabled for further details and explicit example.

look at the other appearance properties then ... something isn't right, it should grey-out.  Can you send us a pic of your button with the button.enable = false please.  I'll look further into it in the morning, I don't have VB at home.
