When a user clicks a command button on a form in MS Access I would like to write the Form Name, command button caption, username, date and time to a file using vba.  I know how to capture everything except for the Command Button Caption.  How would I do that?

Thank You.
I was looking for a generic piece of code that would work regardless of the command button clicked and Me.ActiveControl.caption is what I needed.

Another good one along those lines is

Me.previouscontrol

Good for command button code for determining the textbox etc the user was entering data in immediately before clicking the button.
