Set value of a field with a button

I have a tabular subform with fields expr1, time in, time out, and initials.
I would like to add a button next to each record that, on double click, sets the value of time out to now().

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don't even need a button.  You can put the suggested code into the double click event of the control you want to update.  

However, if you do use a button, the correct event to use is the click event.  It is important that interface actions be consistent across the board.  If in every other application (including windows) and in all your other forms, clicking once activates the button code, then that is how buttons should work on this form.
