- People are always better at following a marked path,…which is why we have Command button navigation.…It can be essential.…There are more ways to guide and control…through events than just buttons that we put on forms.…But you need to understand…a little bit more about event triggers.…What I want to do is reopen the database…and bypass all the startup options…which will also bypass the autoexec.…And I want to take you in to the design of this now form,…we're going to add an admin button.…And I'll talk to you about the difference between embedded…and stand alone macros.…
