find a control, on GUI design view

How can I find a control on a form in Design View in Access 2007/20010.
The form has several pages and loads of controls.
From the code  I have the name of one of the controls, a commandbutton ("bUse") , and the form name - but where on the form is it? It is hiding from my eyes...

Is there an easy way to find where it is?

In design view, select the Form Design Tools table, then on the Left side, select the Control list dropdown box .. pick your control name, and it will become selected on the Form.

Another option that I use is from the property sheet (Alt+enter).

Use the drop down list in the upper left corner.
