MS Visio 2010 - VBA command syntex used to run a macro from a visio button

I am trying to run a macro that I have developed in Visio from a button that I have placed on a Visio page.  However, I cannot determine how to run the macro when the user clicks the button.

I am looking for the syntex to use to initiate the macro when the button is clicked or how to assign a macro to run from a button on the page.

Any Assistaance would be appreciated

Running the code with a double-click is easier than with a single click because it doesn't require any programming. If you can live with a double-click, select the button, then on the Developer tab, in the Shape Design group, click the Behavior button. Then click the Double-Click tab, click the radio button for Run macro and select the name of your macro from the dropdown list.

To enable single-click actions, take a look at this question as a starting point.

Hi LD,

If you have placed an "ActiveX button" on a page (i.e. a "real" button, like what you would do in VBA), then try this:

1. Right-click the button
2. Choose CommandButton Object > View Code
3. This will take you to the VBA editor, in a procedure with a name like "Private Sub CommandButton1_Click"
4. If your code is in fact in the VBA, then you can call your code from this procedure. An example might be: Call MMyMacros.DoStuff()

Cheers!

Thanks both of you. These answers both address what I need to do. You both have just increased my ability in the coding and macros in Visio. I is a little different syntax than MS Access VB Coding.

I appreciate you assistance

Thanks
