Hi all,
This should be a quick and easy question...I am looking at extracing an icon from a resource file, however, I don't know which file has the icon I am looking for.

Is there a way to find it?  or Does anyone know which file the icon for "Filter by Selection/Apply Filter" in MS Access is in?

Thanks in advance!

If you mean the image on the toolbar, it's probably not an icon at all, but a bitmap.  If you want to use it on your own toolbar, you could use a graphic editing program e.g., Paint, to crop just that image out of a screen capture of the Access window.

Thanks for your help.  It's not what I wanted, but I did get the image extracted like you said.  I took a screen shot and then cropped it in paint.

I wanted the name of the resource dll that these images are containted in.  But this will do.

Thanks
