"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Use vba from a command button :

Docmd.openquery "yourQueryName"

Just create a command but with the one line of code shown above ... that will open your query in datasheet view.

IF ... you want to run a Action query (Update, Delete, MakeTable, Append), then do this

Private Sub btnRunQry_Click()
  CurrentDB.Execute "YourQueryName" , dbFailOnError
End Sub

Well, it was at the same time - and EE guidelines/ettiquette allow for splits at the author's discretion in these cases, but I'm going to cut through the nonsense and just reallocate the points.
