Change the mouse cursor to hand cursor when passing over a control

This must be a piece of cake and I'm sure it has been addressed somewhere in this forum.

I have a form with a control that when clicked on opens another form. So I want the cursor to change to a hand cursor when moving over the control like with a hyperlink, making it easy to spot for the user (I guess you saw this one coming). In Access 2007 I could simply make the control a hyperlink with the "always" attribute, and the hand cursor appears when moving the mouse over it. But this doesn't work in Access 2003 for that particular control (although strange enough, it does for another control that is equally a text box).

Any ideas for a VB code that achieves this?

Ok, done. I found the solution here: http://www.thescripts.com/forum/thread662035-hand+cursor.html

There is an embedded Word file which explains exactly what to do.
