"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, but it requires a lot of Win32 API stuff. What exactly do you like to do?

Unless you need to display something "inside" the circle (make it transparent), you can just insert an "image" of a circle quite easily in a form.
Just use the one of the image controls in Access.

I was able to resize the control and basically create any size circle I want. only problem with an image is that the line thickness scales with image. Apart from that had to change border colour and background colour to match form's background but from this you could create perfect ovals.

Great thanks Derek
