Passing a forms name to a function (without going into the module behind the form)

Using the on-click event handler, I want to pass the current form name to a function using something like this:

=StoreForm([me].[form].[name])

This gives me the following error:

"The expression On Click you entered as the event property setting produced the following error: The object doesn't contain the Automation object 'me'"

I can easily do it if I go into the module behind - but for this purpose, I'd prefer not to do that.

Incidentally, the function that I'm trying to call starts as....

Public Function StoreForm(frmName As Form)
