I have a vb program that reads a number of files with differnt names and processes each file to add a header.

the program works great BUT the only problem is it sometimes misses the last file unless I place a msgbox in the code to be clicked.  It like the program needs to refocus to pick up the last file.

Does anyone have any ideas.

Thanks

Use DoEvents after processing each file.  This will allow your app to "catch it's breath".
