Try add the M$ ProgressBar Control from the More Controls button from ToolBox, draw a Progress Bar to your form, named it as progressbar, then draw a command button and named it as Command1, then in the Command1's click event, add the following codes:

Option Compare Database
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    progressbar.Max = 100
    progressbar.Min = 1
    progressbar.Value = progressbar.Min
   
    For i = 1 To progressbar.Max - progressbar.Min
        progressbar.Value = progressbar.Value + 1
        Sleep 50
        DoEvents
    Next
End Sub

Is that working? cheers

Hi,

Thks for the pts.. By the way, to get the info regarding the ActiveX Control, in design view, simply right click the control, select the ProgCtrl Object > Properties to view its Properties, for methods, sorry, you may need to refer it's method from MSDN. Or if you got the Visual Basic, you can see it's method at Object Browser after you add in the Progress bar control.

Hope this helps
