    Unanswered: Database Icons


    Probably a simple question....

    I have changed the icons for three multi-user database's (in startup properties), so if a user has all three db's open they know instantly wich database is which in thier task bar.

    Each user has a shortcut to these front ends on either the office shotrcut bar or the quickluanch task bar.

    My question is can I change the icon of the actual database (on the lan, shortcut bar, etc)? So the users see the custom icon for each db - not the standard MSAccess one?

    Go to startup options of the database:

    1. Right-click on title bar of the database.
    2. Choose "Startup ..."
    3. Specify icon..

    You can only change the Icon of the shortcut, and not the actual .mdw file.
    Right-click on the shortcut in their quick-lauch toolbar (or the shortcut that the Office Bar points to) then go to properties. Click change icon, and browse for the Icon you want.
    You must do this to the shortcut on each users computer though.
    Hope this helps
