Trying to set the color of the detail section of a subform using vba

Trying to set the color of the detail section of a subform using this code:

            Forms![0_masterdatafrm]![80_ConstrMtgWkgFrm]![GroupMeetingAgendaBtn].Caption = "Standard Agenda"

gives me run-time error 438 "object doesn't support this property or method

When I toggle a button on the subform the color of the detail section of the subform changes okay using this code:

             Me.Detail.BackColor = 16777215

I'm sure its a simple syntax issue but I'm stumped

Try specifying the Form object:

Forms![0_masterdatafrm]![80_ConstrMtgWkgFrm].Form![GroupMeetingAgendaBtn].Caption = "Standard Agenda"

Open in new window

Also, 80_ConstrMtgWkgFrm  must be the name of the subform control, which may differ from the form it holds.
