Creating a Custom icon for MS Access VBA Program

For example, to launch an application named My DB.mdb on C:\ root, open properties of a shortcut then put this command line in the target :
“C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office 20XX\OFFICE1X\MSACCESS.EXE” “C:\My DB.mdb”
Modify x to fit with your MS Office version. Finally, change shortcut icon.

When you run this shortcut, your MS Access application runs in a separated group of you W7 taskbar that shows your own icon.

You can totally automise this process with a CreateShortcut Windows API from vb and detect automatically MS Access executable to get a professional issue.
