What is the best way to show form while another forms sub is running?

I've got a form where user gives some information and then pushes the save button which runs SaveDatabase sub and that saving can take a while. I would like show some kind of "Saving in progress..." form there and it would disappear when saving is done.

Anybody any ideas where I could find some nice saving animations?

Thanks in advance!

Do as follow :

Sub SaveDatabase()

    FormWait.show
    doevents
   
    '*** Here save your database
    ...
    ...

    '*** Work is done

    unload FormWait

End Sub

Is there any way to do this if those both forms are modal?

The only way, is doing the save database in your modal waiting form.
