Hi there,

I was trying to get a time delay inserted in the execution of my VBA code. Is there a command which exists wherein we could say like execute the code ahead only after a pause of some 'x' seconds.

Cheers
Goel

place this code at the top of your project

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

then you can call the Sleep() function wherever in your code

Sleep(1000) 'this should equal one second
