I am using "SysCmd acSysCmdSetStatus" to add text to the status bar of my Access db.  I am trying to figure out how to put text into the different pannels on the status bar.  Thanks.

    dim vRet as variant

    vRet = SysCmd(acSysCmdSetStatus, "blah, blah...")

    did it help?

    Sorry I really did not make it clear.  I can put text on the status bar.  But the status bar has more than one panel on it.  There is a long panel or the left that I am adding text to now.  But there are other, smaller panels on the right.  I would like to put text in these panels as well.  Not sure if I can.  But thanks for the quick response!
