I would like to open a table to edit (when necessary) using a button. The button will reside on a form that I created for a Main Menu. The name of the table is "ListofDetectives -tbl". I tried this ( docmd.opentable "ListofDetectives -tbl", acviewnormal).

Is this the correct syntax? If so, where would I place it? I do understand that buttons are really for forms, records, reports. I am curious if this can be done.
Thanks
Earl
