Hi Kamall,
   Need your advice on progress bar again. The codes that you have provided works perfectly fine. But If i were to apply it into a do while loop. What would be the codes I need to modify in order to capture the processing accurately that means when my loop ends, my progress bar should end too. (Worst still is that I can only get the maximum value when my do while loop end.)Thus I was thinking how I could assign a value to progressbar1.max=value at the begining which we have been doing in a for loop.

Below are my codes:

Do while not EOF(1)
ProgressBar1.visible=true
ProgressBar1.Max=int_progress
......

record=record+1    //this is the place which my counter increase
........          //and only loop end then would I be able to
........         //know the no of records being processed.


ProgressBar1.Value=int_progress
int_progress=int_progress+1

Loop
ProgressBar1.visble=False

Problem: My ProgressBar will always reach the end before my Do loop ends. Could you Please advise?
