What is the code for System Menu Highlight for Back Color on a property on a control on a form?

I am using Access 2007 and need to use VBA code to change the back color on a label to "System Menu Highlight".

This fails:  Me.lblBondNum.BackColor = "System Menu Highlight" if I use the string. Is there a code/number to use for System Menu Highlight, so I can set the property?

You can also use the object browser (F2) and search the VBA library for SystemColorConstants.

I don't see anything that looks like  System Menu Highlight, but you can try the value of "Background color of items selected in a control" , -2147483635.
