Is it possible to add commad buttons to the datasheet view of a form? I've tried placing them everywhere, but they don't show up.
Thanks
Matt

Hi Matt,

Odon't think so. Could you use a Continuous View form that is made to look like a Datasheet View form? Continuous View forms can have buttons.
Just my 2 cents...

Matt -
ontinuous forms will let you put controls like buttons on your form.
If you need the datasheet view, you can add an unbound field to the form, and set the default value as something like "Click Here", and you can run code on the Click event of that unbound field like you would for a button. You can't get the same visual as a button, but you can use a different font or color to put a checkmark or arrow or something in the field instead of "Click Here"...
