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

You can draw it on a report.

You may take also a look at Stephen Lebans' ImageClass.

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
