How do I change the button color in Access? I want the actual back color of the button to change, not the font. Is that possible?

Thanks!

Instead of using a command button, use a label.  You can format a label to look just like a button, and it has the same major events such as Click and DblClick, and you can also change its BackColor property.

Best wishes,
