I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Here a little function that might help

Function Wait(HowLong, interval)

    Dim StartedAt As Date
    StartedAt = Now
   
    Do Until DateDiff(interval, StartedAt, Now()) >= HowLong
    Loop

End Function

Interval:
yyyy      Year
q      Quarter
m      Month
y      Day of year
d      Day
w      Weekday
ww      Week
h      Hour
n      Minute
s      Second

Hope this helps !

You may want to add a doevents inbetween the loop, that way other apps will run, and not stop.  Just a suggestion.

redbaron is right.

DoEvents will allow Windows to process all upcomming events.

BUT if the wanted delay is small (couple of seconds) I would suggest to leave it as it is (perhaps make the function check the length and doevents for surtain combinations of HowLong and interval). When windows start performing events it can go on for quit some time.
