Filter by form disable all command buttons - Microsoft Access

A very simple scenario - I have several command buttons on a form doing different things. When filter by form is pressed, all the buttons on the form are disabled, why is that? If I have a Help button, I want that to be enabled at all time. Thanks. --richard...

    Default Re: Filter by form disable all command buttons

    FilterByForm is a special view, in which none of your event procedures run,
    including the Click of command buttons.

    You could add a button to the toolbar.
