Open a form or a data access page in Design view.

Make sure the Control Wizards Button image tool in the toolbox is not pressed in. This turns off the wizard.

 In the toolbox, click the Command Button tool Control.

On the form or data access page, click where you want to place the command button.

Make sure that the command button is selected, and then click Properties Button image on the toolbar to open the command button's property sheet.

In the OnClick property box on a form, enter the name of the macro or event procedure that you want to run when the button is clicked, or click the Build button to use the Macro Builder or Code Builder. On a data access page, you can attach code written in either JScript or Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) to a command button by using the Microsoft Script Editor.

Do one of the following:

To display text on a command button on a data access page: Type the text in command button's Value property box.

To display text on a command button on a form: Type the text in the command button's Caption property box.

To display a picture on a command button on a form: In the command button's Picture property box, type the path and file name for a .bmp, .ico, or .dib file. If you're not sure of the path or file name, click the Build button Button image to open the Picture Builder.
