Default Common “Button Block”

We would like to add four small buttons to many Access 2007 forms.

The four buttons will always do the same thing on each form.

They will always be located in approximately the same place on each form.

Is there a way to create the “Button Block” and then be able to easily
propagate it to many forms?

Thanks!
Brad

Default Common "Button Block"

An easy way is to use a template form.
You can make a set of template forms with the most common forms you use.
To use a template form, simply make a copy of it and use that to start your
new form.

To add the 4 buttons to existing forms, I only know of copy and paste.

Depending on what the buttons are used for, it may be possible to create a
buttons subform, but I'm not sure that offers enough advantages over copy and
paste to justify the possible added complexity of the coding.

I agree with Jeanette that template forms may offer the most expedient
approach.
