Command Button Builder Options

Copper Contributor



I'm new to Access and following a tutorial online and am at a point where they are teaching how to assign macros to command buttons.


In the tutorial, when they click the "ellipsis button" on the Property Sheet...


a dialogue box pops up with options for different "builders" to choose from.


However, this does not happen for me. When I click the button it automatically opens the VBA window.


Is there a way to change this behavior? I looked through the options but didn't see anything.


I've figured out I can create the macro separately and then assign it to the command button, so I have a workaround; but being able to use the Property Sheet while I'm designing a form seems much more convenient.


I'm using Access with Microsoft 365 on Windows 11.


Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Yes, you can change that: File > Options > Object Designers > Uncheck "Always use event procedures".
