    Hi Kalidas,

    Command button is having two properties to handle your requirement.

    Method 1. Enabled property of Command button

    Example:
    Commandbutton1.Enabled=True ‘This will allow user to click on the button to execute the code inside the command button event.
    Commandbutton1.Enabled=False ‘It will not execute the code even after clicking on it.

    Method 2: Visible Property of the Command button
    Commandbutton1.Visible=True ‘it will display the commandbutton
    Commandbutton1.Visible=False’it will hide the commandbutton

    Hope this helps!
    Thanks-PNRao!
