Is there any way for a timer to be put on command button that you could not fire it 5 minutes before the hour and 10 minutes after the hour.

you could put code in the timer event of the form and set the forms timerinterval to 30000 (30 seconds).

Private sub Form_Timer

me.cmd_YourbuttonName.Enabled = Minute(Now()) >= 10 AND Minute(Now()) < 55

End Sub

you also need to set the focus to other control to enable/disable the command button

if the command button has the focus, you will get an error.
