MS Access event assignmts

Have 4 buttons same code for retieving word doc and retrival works fine
However, event procedure doesn't save when assigning to different buttons
Is this an incorrect prcedure? Saving ode to a command button seems intuitive but when moving to recording to the following buttons seems to erase the event procedure on the previous button.
any suggstions helpful

each button pulls up a differnet word template for data merge
just redid event assignments to each button but only the last button retains the event procedure.

these are the 4 events for the 4 cmd buttons

Private Sub Command106_Click()

Dim mydoc As String
mydoc = "C:\Users\sewellg\Desktop\New Router Config Tool 2\DC2 VPN Router.docx"
Application.FollowHyperlink mydoc

End Sub

Private Sub Command107_Click()

Dim mydoc As String
mydoc = "C:\Users\sewellg\Desktop\New Router Config Tool 2\DC2 VPN Tunnel.docx"
Application.FollowHyperlink mydoc

End Sub

Private Sub Command108_Click()

Dim mydoc As String
mydoc = "C:\Users\sewellg\Desktop\New Router Config Tool 2\DC1 VPN Router.docx"
Application.FollowHyperlink mydoc

End Sub

Private Sub Command109_Click()

Dim mydoc As String

It is not enough to add code in the code window.
Yes, in the code window, you can click the object drop down and get the event for a different control
You can copy a procedure

 Private Sub Command109_Click()
 Dim mydoc As String
 mydoc = "C:\Users\sewellg\Desktop\New Router Config Tool 2\DC1 VPN Tunnel.docx"
 Application.FollowHyperlink mydoc
 End Sub


Paste it can change it's name

Private Sub Command110_Click()
 Dim mydoc As String
 mydoc = "C:\Users\sewellg\Desktop\New Router Config Tool 2\DC1 VPN Tunnel.docx"
 Application.FollowHyperlink mydoc
 End Sub


But until you've gone in the Design View | Properties window and set the Click Event to [Event Procedure] that control isn't going to use the event.

Two stages!
Assign the control in the Design view [Event Procedure] for the appropriate event
Code the event in the Window.

I've fixed your sample using Access 2013

first open the form that have your 4 command buttons

select one command button, then hit F4
select the Event Tab and look for the On Click event
click the drop down arrow and select [Event Procedure]
then click the (...) this will take you to the VBA window..

Only the 1st button worked that is what I had to start with
I was following your procedure since yesterday a few dozen times and when one proceeds to the next button it erases previous procedure for previous button even saving and geting out and back into DB
Your db did show the Event click process in each property box but if I use the .... then it starts a new instance.
Appreciate your patience.

< if I use the .... then it starts a new instance.>
this instance is the one that you must use..

also, it will be a lot easier for you to read your codes if you will give your controls, command buttons in this case, a meaningful name not command1, command 2 etc...

Ok here is your sample again.
Each button is wired up
Each button has identical code in it
The code survived a compact & repair.
You will need to alter the code to match the filenames you actually want to open.

Unlike VB6 and VB.NET, each control MUST have it's own event handler.
Stuff like

Private Sub OpenFile() Handles command106_click(),command107_click() ...

is not valid.

You have 4 controls
Each is wired up with a click [Event Procedure]
Each event exists in the code module.
Check the sample.

With accdb files EE is broken at the moment.
You must right-click the file and Choose Save As.
Then Choose All Files
And then give it an .accdb ending
