Synchronising code and form

I am running this piece of code :-

Do Until Len(sFilename) = 0

  Progress.Text = Progress.Text & vbCrLf & "Extracting Text from " & sFilename
  Call Import_to_access(sFilename)

  Progress.Text = Progress.Text & vbCrLf & "Exporting to " & Left(sFilename, Len(sFilename) - 4) & ".dbf"
  Call Export_current(sFilename)

  sFilename = Dir()
Loop

But the Progress field is not updated until the whole thing has finished.  Is it possible to have a way of showing the progress as it goes?

Thanks

Do Until Len(sFilename) = 0

 Progress.Text = Progress.Text & vbCrLf & "Extracting Text from " & sFilename

 progress.refresh

 Call Import_to_access(sFilename)

 Progress.Text = Progress.Text & vbCrLf & "Exporting to " & Left(sFilename, Len(sFilename) - 4) & ".dbf"

 progress.refresh

 Call Export_current(sFilename)

 sFilename = Dir()
Loop

Try to issue a refresh statement like

   Progress.Refresh

immediately after changing the progress bar's properties.

Hi
u should add Progress.Refresh after you set the text property.  This method forces the text box to redraw before the rest of the code continues to execue.
