"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.

Easiest way to control this, is probably insert a picture instead (as the form doesn't have anything similar, other solutions draws on Windows, not the form perse)

That's because for that code to work, Me must be a report.

You need tricks for drawing on a form, for example from an old EE post:

Thanks Gustav. Well spotted I asked this question 4 years ago and solved most of it myself. Ended up not using it and forgot all about it.

Kimputer, what do you mean draw on windows?

Dale Link to Linked In does not work for me.

Oh, I didn't even notice you were the asker back then.
Talk about moving in circles.

Merry Christmas!
KimputerCommented:
There are some Windows API solution, but they're quite ugly, and draw on Windows itself, not on the form. If you move the form, the circle stays there. Here's on example: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/8c39712f-fb49-4ef6-9fd2-245b79bb6c67/using-gdi-in-excel-vba?forum=isvvba

I do hope points have been allocated this time please confirm and let me know how points were distributed. I have no idea why EE has changed what was a simple easy system for this new one, which is weird.
