I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is one way to do it:  Create a new project and add a new shape control.  Paste the code below and try clicking on the form.  It should alternate between red and green with each click.  Just change the size to what you need and place it where you want it to go.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Shape1.Shape = vbShapeCircle
    Shape1.FillStyle = vbFSSolid
    Shape1.FillColor = vbGreen
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Click()
    If Shape1.FillColor = vbRed Then
        Shape1.FillColor = vbGreen
    Else
        Shape1.FillColor = vbRed
    End If
End Sub
