Change application icon with vba

Can I change the application Icon (under Tools | Startup | Application Icon) using VBA.  It will actually be in another database, though I assume if I can do it at all then I can do it in another database with opencurrentdatabase

Thanks

Dim acc As Access.Application
Dim db As DAO.Database
Set acc = New Access.Application
acc.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\db7.mdb"

Set db = acc.CurrentDb

db.Properties("AppIcon").Value = "c:\myICON.ICO"

Ok, you may need to open the other database and set it to something before you can change it like this (Tools - Startup) because until you do this, the db wont have this property, otherwise we COULD test to see if it exists, if it doesnt create it (not 100% sure how to do that)

I couldn't seem to create the property either, but setting an icon initially seemed to work
