MS FlexGrid Checkbox and MS Access

Alright heres an interesting question...

I'm using Microsoft Access 2000 and I'm using an MSFLex Grid control to display some records.  I've got the code working for that and now I'm trying to show a check box when the user double clicks on a row.  Sounds simple enough right?

I've found the code for VB to set the .CellPicture property but it doesn't seem to be working in MS Access VBA.  

Here's some sample code to populate the FlexGrid:

Public Sub PopulateCells()

Dim i As Integer

    flxItems.Rows = 10
    flxItems.Cols = 2
    flxItems.FixedRows = 1
    flxItems.FixedCols = 1
    flxItems.TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Item"

    For i = 1 To 10
        flxItems.Row = i - 1
        flxItems.col = 0
        Set flxItems.CellPicture = picChecked.Picture
        flxItems.TextMatrix(i - 1, 1) = "Item " & Format$(i _
            - 1)
    Next i

End Sub

Then when a user double clicks on a cell, I'm using

Set flxItems.CellPicture = picChecked.Picture

Where picChecked is just an Image that I've placed on my form.  When I double click on a cell I get Error 424, Object Required, and the above line of code is highlighted.  

Any ideas?

Try this:

Set flxItems.Object.CellPicture = picChecked.Picture

Also, you may find that this Method isn't supported in Access ... many ActiveX controls are only partially supported.

Thanks for the comment, but using the above code I still the "Object Required" error message.  

Any other ideas?
