    I have never used Filter by Form so had to investigate. Might be able to create a button on form that when clicked would execute the filter toggle.

    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdToggleFilter

    Not tested, let us know how that works out.

    You have a custom button on form to run the Toggle command? You can shortcut key the button caption so that Alt+key will execute.

    One button for
    Docmd.RunCommand acCmdFilterByForm

    Another button for
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdToggleFilter
