Using Global Variables as Counters

I am trying to put a counter in my program which will keep track of how many times a command button is pressed. I know it is simple but I can't figure it out.

In the declarations section of your form, dimension an integer variable called Count or something like that (Dim Count as integer). Then, in the Click event of the button, add 1 to Count (Count = Count + 1). At some point, you may want to display the number of presses, so you can do a Message box and display it like this: MsgBox "Number of Presses: " & cstr(Count) Put that line of code in another command button click event, or wherever.
