Code for a module used on multiple forms

I have many forms that when they open all use the same code.  Is there a way to have each form look at a module for the code.  This would help in allowing me one place to make changes and not every form that needs it.  (I am using Access 2007.)

If this doesn't make sense let me know and I will try to explain more in depth.

Yes, just put the code in a standard module and call it from the whatever event, eg Open, you are currently running it from.

Expanding ...
After you create your Function (not a Sub) in a Standard Module, you can, if you like ... call it directly from the Property Sheet of a Control or Form - see image. And you can select multiple controls at once ... and paste in your Function name (with the equals sign) ...

And of course, besides the Property sheet 'call', you can do it an VBA code anywhere:


' some code

Call mMySpecialFunction()

' more code
