Acces Icon and taskbar grouping error?

6 New Member
By setting a custom icon for a mdb and setting it also to be shown in any form it is successfully used in the taksbar when I open the database and one or two single forms.

However, as soon as I open some more forms, the icons get grouped on the taskbar, but with the generic icon, not with his custom icon.

Does somebody know how to solve this (without disabling the grouping function of the taksbar)?

Hmm, strange and new to me.
Did you set the database icon in the database properties and also in the same folder as the database resides?

Hi Nico,

The ico file is in the folder of the mdb and is working right in the access window and in every form corner. It works also as taskbar icon for the database and single forms as long they are not grouped.

When the taskbar icons get grouped, all the windows keep the custom icon but the the main task said: "6 Microsoft Office Access" with the default access icon.

Thanks in advance

Hmm, I guess you're out of luck this time :-(
The only remaining option I see is to do some "heavy" coding using the Windows .dll's to hook into the Operating system. Not easy and something I try to avoid...

I will have to untick the task for forms option in access until I get some solution.

Thank You, anyway
