How can you programmatically select a specific color theme, either custom or MS Access standards such as Median, Paper, or Marquee?

I have defined three custom color schemes using the path Design>Colors>Custom colors.

My names and respective custom colors for Accent 1 and Accent 2 are as follows:

BlackRed (Black, Red)
BlackYellow (Black, Yellow)
Custom1 (Green,Blue)

I want to change the color of all the forms in my application to use the same color scheme without opening and changing each form.

I already have code to successfully change the color, but it is driven by the Color Scheme selected when the form was FIRST created.

If the form was originally created using scheme BlackRed, then I would like to specify the new color scheme as BlackYelllow,
so that when my code to change color executes, Accent 2 will be changed from Red to Yellow.

How would you use code to select color scheme Custom1(Green,Blue) from my list of three color schemes?

Here's what doesn't work:

With Forms(o.Name)
.PaintPalette = "Custom1"
.Detail.BackThemeColorIndex = 4
.Detail.BackShade = 50
End With

I've also tried to set the PalletSource property of the form from its standard value (Default), but changing this property generates an error.
