If I run the following code and then close the mdb file, there remains an open Access window which will minimise but will not close. How can I prevent this?


Public Sub AddIconProperty()
   
    Dim prpAppIcon
    Dim prop As Property
           
    Set dbs = CurrentDb
    Set prpAppIcon = dbs.CreateProperty("AppIcon")
    prpAppIcon.Name = "AppIcon"
    prpAppIcon.Type = dbText
    prpAppIcon.Value = "C:\My Documents\Other\WORK\Rimses Reports\Reports.ico"
    On Error GoTo Err_Appending_Property
    dbs.Properties.Append prpAppIcon

    RefreshTitleBar
       
Exit_AddIconProperty:
    Exit Sub
   
Err_Appending_Property:
    Exit Sub
       
End Sub

I think you've encountered a documented bug in Access. See the following:
