I want to display a custom icon for a database.  The file is a .bmp file.  I have tried File > Options > Current Database > Application Icon and browsed to the file but when I restart the database and close it the desktop icon is still the default Access icon.

What am I doing wrong?

The icon I have chosen does appear on the taskbar.  But is there a way to change the default desktop icon just for this one database?

Only by creating a shortcut to open the database. This shortcut can be assigned any icon.
