Making an image behave like a button
Sometimes you want to make a button with a favorite (small) image and you don't have a bmp file or a ico and cannot make one. In this case add the image that you want to your form.
Set the following properties on the image,
size mode = stretch (if the image is too large)
special effect = raised
name = "Something meaningful"
Now setup the following code for the onclick event.
Private Sub fetch1_Click()
'Make an image behave like a button
fetch1.SpecialEffect = acEffectSunken
YOUR CODE HERE (ie docmd.openform )
fetch1.SpecialEffect = acEffectRaised
Here is a sample of an image as button
