How to change the mouse icon in col in a mshflexgrid

I have a column of links that can be clicked and want the mouse pointer to turn to a finger
Private Sub FlxGrd_MouseMove(Index As Integer, Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)
 If Index = 2 Then
   With FlxGrd(2)
    If .Row > 0 And .Col = 0 Then
      'change Mouse Icon here
      Else
      'default MouseIcon for other cols rows
    End If
  End With
 End If
End Sub
how to do this?

Didn't realize it at the time, but i have the cursor in a resource file
thanks martinliss
this works
Set .MouseIcon = LoadResPicture(101, vbResCursor), however it is not limited to the first column col(0)
Thanks vb_elmar
I am trying to tweak your code to work, so far no luck
if push comes to shove i will leave the finger and just get the data from first column based on the row clicked

IIf you change line 5 in my code to

Set.MouseIcon = LoadResPicture(101, vbResCursor)

doesn't it work?

Yes it works good, Thank you
But  the whole grid is the finger, not just the first column(0)

Here is working code. (Substitute your resource cursor)

Private Sub FlxGrd_MouseMove(Index As Integer, Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)

If Index = 2 Then

    With FlxGrd(Index)
        If x < .CellWidth Then
        Set .MouseIcon = LoadPicture("C:\temp\hand.cur")
        .MousePointer = vbCustom
    Else
        .MousePointer = vbNormal
    End If
    
    End With

End If

End Sub
