Defining a reference to Microsoft Agent on a form

How do I define a reference to a Microsoft Agent on an Access form ? After putting the control on a form and trying this:
Dim myagent As Agent
 Set myagent = Forms!Form1!ActiveXctl0

I get "Type Mismatch".

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. 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.

This syntax is wrong:

     Set myagent = Forms!Form1!ActiveXctl0

If you are setting something, it must always be to an object.  In the VBA window, use the object browser (F2) to work out what these objects are.  

I imagine the line should look something like this:

     Set myagent = myApp.Forms("Form1").ActiveXctl0

No I can use Me.ActiveXCtl0 too and get the same thing.

Try add the M$ Agent Control x.x Library from Reference, with an Agent placed on your form, then try:

Dim Character As IAgentCtlCharacterEx

charID = "MyCharacterName"
charRunPath = "C:\windows\msagent\chars\myCharacter.acs"

MyAgent.Characters.Load charID, charRunPath
    Set Character = MyAgent.Characters(charID)

sorry, as not response on this thread...

>>What does is charID = "MyCharacterName"?
Actually you can put whatever as you like.. in this line:

MyAgent.Characters.Load charID, charRunPath

what important will be the charRunPath, which indicates the location of the .acs (the character file) file to be loaded later.
