Access 97 Runtime - application icon doesn't appear

Sam
I've been googling for a couple of hours now and tried some different
things, but I've been unable to get the icon for a distributed access
application to do anything but display the default microsoft access
icon. I've included the icon with the distribution and specified it as
the application in the icon in the wizard, but no love from Access.

Any help with this will me much appreciated.

Thanks,

Two things come to mind. First, have you used Tools | Startup and set
the Application Icon property? You can also set the property in VBA
code during your application's startup:

CurrentDb.Prope rties("AppIcon" ).Value = "d:\path\myicon .ico"

If the path to the icon will change, it is best to use the code above
to set the path to that of the mdb file. HTH

that is, any help with this will *be* much appreciated - by me.

Btw, I have set the "use as icon" property for the icon in the wizard,
but it still seems to have no impact.

Another related quesion is that when I set the icon for the shortcut
(in XP), the shortcut now has the icon, but the icon displayed in the
taskbar still shows the default icon for access. Is there a way to
set it so the icon in the taskbar also shows the application icon?

Thanks,

Many thanks, Rick! I'm sure it will work.

The MS Access group is the best technical help group I've run into on
usenet, bar none.
