I've tried "sleep", I've tried "delay.  Both without luck.  And WAITFOR related to SQL Server.


Thanks for the help.  I'm sure it's obvious, but sometimes the most obvious problems are the worst to solve.

Thank you.

Thread.Sleep(NumberOfMilliseconds);

Note that that causes the entire thread or process to pause.

How do you determine that it didn't pause?

It's in the System.Threading namespace if you can't find it.

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(x);

X = number of milisecconds to sleep.
