Call subroutine from another form using string ms access

Last Modified: 2017-11-12
hi i cannot find this solution anywhere!! i'm trying to call on a subroutine from another form.

for example form A contains command7_click ( i made it public sub routine) and i want to call that command7_click from another form (form b). i can easily call it by using forms!formA.command7_click but the command7_click is a string on formb as i'm trying to pass what subroutine will be used to form b.
usecommand = "command7_click"

how can i call command7_click from FormB using string variable?

application.run command7_click will not work.
forms!formA.usecommand does not work
form!formA(usecommand) does not work
eval(usecommand) does not work
please help!
