Creating a transparent CommandButton

RWayneH asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a s-sheet that has 32 transparent buttons on it.  Problem is that I need to change the procedure that is run on the buttons.  When I record a macro I noticed that VBA is not declaring what button is being changed...

Is there a way to create a transparent CommandButton, so I can write a procedure that will change the script that is executed when it is clicked on?  then switch it back to what is was.

The recorded code is below...  I would rather have a CommandButton1, so I can select it point it to a different Sub, and then on a different day switch it back.  Looking for a bit of direction.

Please advise and thanks. -R-
Sub SwitchCompletedOrdersForAMondayOnTheDashboard()
' SwitchCompletedOrdersForAMondayOnTheDashboard Macro

    Selection.OnAction = "MDL_GetOnlyPastDueCompletedOrdersTodayMinusThreeDay"
End Sub
Sub SwitchCompletedBackToTuesThruFriday()
' SwitchCompletedBackToTuesThruFriday Macro

    Selection.OnAction = "MDL_GetOnlyPastDueCompletedOrdersTodayMinusOneDay"
End Sub
