Paste this code and load any icon you want for the mouse:

Me.MouseIcon = LoadPicture("c:\yourMouseIcon.ico")
Me.MousePointer = vbCustom

Hello, bhnv9 :

Thanks for information.

I have one more thing to ask to see if you can solve :

Since I don't want to use external ico file, so I try to add this ico to resource file and change code as follows :

Me.MouseIcon = LoadResPicture(101,vbResIcon)
Me.MousePointer = vbCustom

But the appearance of file is different ? Why ?
