    Changing icon

    Does anyone know how to change the icon of a excel file (one particular workbook, not all the .xls files)

    I already have my .ico, I just need to assign it.

    Thanks in advance!!

    The icon is chosen based on the file type and I don't believe there is a way to do exactly what you are wanting. My suggestion would be to create a shortcut to the file and change the icon of the shortcut.

    I believe Windows keys off of file extensions in assigning icons to files.
    I don't know of an exception to that.
