Been trying to implement a countdown timer for awhile.
Here's what I have. A do loop that goes through a recordset of approx 250000 records and performs updates on each. Takes quite some time, around 20 minutes. I am using a progress bar to view it run, but would be a little more userful if I had a way to display the approximate time remaining to run through the entire loop.
I know this involves some use of the timer, but can't really get a handle on how this would work.
VB 6 code that works gets 500 pts ... thanks!
