I have embedded Windows Media Player (WMPLAYER.OCX.7) on a form.
In VB the code would be
WindowsMediaPlayer0.Ctlcontrols.Play  with the player name WindowsMediaPlayer0

I cannot find the "Play" command in Access.  there is no CtlControls.

so I found the answer.  In VB for Applications in Access, one must create an object of type WindowsMediaPlayer
then you get the hidden list play, pause, etc.  my WMPlayer is "WindowsMediaPlayer0" on my Access Form.  Another MS undocumented method.

Dim WMP As WindowsMediaPlayer
Set WMP = Me.WindowsMediaPlayer0.Object

WMP.Controls.play
