How to run the same macro from two ActiveX CommandButtons

Hello Experts,
I want to run the same macro assigned to CommandButton21 located on Sheet5 from a new, second CommandButton2 on Sheet 5.  Is there a way to "call" the macro without having to repeat (copy) the macro routine for the second CommandButton2?  Because the button toggles colors and changes text each time invoked, I don't want a solution using a shape.

Will the code for each button be the same?

If it is you could move it to a sub in a standard module and you could call that sub from the buttons' click event.

If it isn't, how does it change for each button?

Since you don't want to create another shape..what you can do is... create  a macro for both of them and refer to that macro which will do what you are looking for...

What i mean is this..lets say we call this macro abc...

Private Sub CommandButton21_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
End Sub

Sub abc
'Your code here..
end sub
