    Changing a dataset symbol - MapPoint 2002

    I have been trying to find, with no luck, how to change the symbols of a Dataset as it appears in the Legend under pushpins.
    I have 2 Datasets
    Beacons Plotted
    Digis Used
    Both datasets show up with the black pushpin symbol. I would like to chnage those symbols. Does anyone have any example of how to do this?

    Thanks in Advance

    This example is in the help file under Properties/Symbol property

    Code:
    Sub ChangePushpinSymbol()
        Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application
        Dim objDataSet As MapPoint.DataSet
    
        Set objDataSet = objApp.OpenMap(objApp.Path & "\Samples\Clients.ptm").DataSets("Clients")
        objApp.Visible = True
        objApp.UserControl = True
    
        'Change the symbol of the current data set
        objDataSet.Symbol = 224
      End Sub
