I want to be able to run an Access app in the background, showing an icon in the system tray. I've managed to get the code to do everything I need except show the icon. In VB, you can use the following statement:

nid.hIcon = Me.Icon

where Me.Icon is a form icon, and nid is a reference to the Shell_NotifyIcon API call.

Access doesn't seem to expose an icon property. How can I get round this in VBA?

Many thanks
