VBA - Pause for 1 second then loop once

Part of my VBA (shown below) is triggered when you click on the button cmdSearch.  This triggers a search query on a database and returns the results.  The strange thing is that the results returned when clicked arn't all of the those that should, if you press search for a second time you then get the full list returned.  I think this may be a problem with the stored procedures which I'll sort out at a later date.  As a workaround , what I want is to put in a bit of extra code that when the cmdSearch button is clicked, it runs the main code below, then has a delay of a second and runs it again.  Any ideas how I would do this?


Private Sub cmdSearch_Click()

    pClearTheGrid

    Dim adosqltemp As New ADODB.Command
    adosqltemp.ActiveConnection = gAdosqlconn

    Dim myvar(0 To 5) As Variant

    Dim lngDept As Long
    lngDept = gActualDept
    myvar(2) = lngDept
    myvar(4) = "Code"
    If optClientName.Value = True Then
       myvar(4) = "Name"
    End If
    myvar(0) = ""
    myvar(1) = UCase(txtClient)
    myvar(3) = chkLinkedDept.Value
    myvar(5) = chkTSonly.Value
   
    chkTSonly = False
   
    adosqltemp.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    adosqltemp.CommandText = "usp_TSCliSearch"
   
    Dim rs2 As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rs2 = adosqltemp.Execute(, myvar)

    Dim irow As Integer
    irow = 0
 
    If rs2.BOF = True And rs2.EOF = True Then
      flxGridClientList.Row = 1
      flxGridClientList.Col = 0
      flxGridClientList.Text = txtClient.Value
      flxGridClientList.Col = 1
      flxGridClientList.Text = "*** No records match ***"
      flxGridClientList.ForeColor = vbRed
      Exit Sub
    End If
   
     flxGridClientList.Visible = False
     irow = 0
     While (Not rs2.EOF) And irow < 30
             
         irow = irow + 1
         flxGridClientList.Rows = irow + 1
         flxGridClientList.Row = irow
         flxGridClientList.Col = 0
         flxGridClientList.Text = rs2!ClientCode
         flxGridClientList.Col = 1
         flxGridClientList.Text = rs2!Title1 & " " & rs2!title2
         rs2.MoveNext
     
      Wend
      flxGridClientList.Visible = True

    Set rs2 = Nothing
   

End Sub

Copy  the bulk of the code to a module procedure, called, say MySearch
Put this code at the end of your cmd Search_click procedure.

Application.OnTime DateAdd("s", 1, Now()), "MySearch"

Apologies for this, I thought I had left an answer, but was wrong.

The reply from GrahamSkan unfortuntly did not work as it then produced a number of errors where it said that it could not find the variables I set.  I believe this is probably due to the number of different forms and how the code has been spreadaround in different modules etc.

While GrahamSkan's reply did not provide the answer it did give me the id of using the Application.OnTime function so I will award him the points, which I eventually got there with

Many Thanks
