Chapter 11. Creating Specialized Forms > Working with Form Command Buttons

Working with Form Command Buttons

As you know all too well from working with dialog boxes in Windows applications, you use a command button to launch some action. For example, you usually click an OK button to put dialog box settings into effect, and you normally use a Cancel button to bail out of a dialog box without performing any action. Other common dialog box command buttons are Print, Close, and the Back, Next, and Finish buttons that are a standard feature of the Microsoft Office wizards.

Access also enables you to add one or more command buttons to your forms. You'll see in several places later in this chapter that you need command buttons for some specialized forms (such as a switchboard and a pop-up box). However, you can also use command buttons for actions such as navigating and manipulating records, working with forms and reports, running macros, and even quitting Access.
