Default Populate command btn Captions

I'm building a form that has 16 command buttons with different part numbers on them. I'm currently loading all the part numbers through the code, but I want them to be linked through a table. Is there a way to automatically populate the caption of the command buttons from a table?

I'm currently setting the value of the caption with the following code:

Form_Form1.cmdParts13.Caption = "892"

Instead of "892", I would like to reference a certain location in a table and use that value

What you can do is create a table that has a record number (autonumber), a button number (e.g. 1, 2, etc.), and a part number (e.g. 892).

On the form, number each button sequentially, e.g. cmdButton1, cmdButton2, etc.

On the form's ON OPEN event, you could do

Dim i as Byte

For i = 1 to 15
    Me("cmdButton" & i).Caption = "Part No. " & DLookUp("[PartNo]", "NameOfTable", "[ButtonNo] = " & i)
Next i

But I have to ask why you have 15 buttons. Why not a combobox with the names of the parts listed with ONE button next to it? The user picks a part number from the combobox and then clicks the one button to get to that part.
