Access 2010 VBA: Looked all over but can't find straight answer for how to set color property of field using, #NNNNNN format

Background:

I have this VBA statement

Form_Storage_Automation_Main_Form.HBA1.BackColor = "#F8F8F8"

I'm getting a "Type Mismatch" error.

I've looked through many online blogs and forums without success. The approach above I got out of a VB example. Is there a difference in VBA?

I don't understand what even the type would be?

What would be the correct way to do this?

Form_Storage_Automation_Main_Form.HBA1.BackColor = &HF8F8F8

You can also use a HexColor Function as well, you can find in below thread:

Hope this helps,

The removal of quotes didn't work for me, but Daniel's example did work.
What also works is to use MSAccess
Form_Storage_Automation_Main_Form.Snapshot_Quantity.BackColor = 11908533

See http://www.endprod.com/colors/

Again, thanks to everyone.
