Hi,

I have this code:

        FileCopy SystemDir & "\Template.xls", cdlg.filename
       
        Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        Set mysheet = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(cdlg.filename).Sheets(1)
           
        mysheet.Cells(4, 1).Value = Trim(Me.StoreName.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 2).Value = Trim(Me.StoreNumber.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 3).Value = Trim(Me.StoreHours.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 4).Value = Trim(Me.SetPoint.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 5).Value = Trim(Me.Days.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 6).Value = Trim(Me.Employee.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 7).Value = Trim(Me.preOpen.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 8).Value = Trim(Me.Open.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 9).Value = Trim(Me.preClose.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 10).Value = Trim(Me.Unoccupied.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 11).Value = Trim(Me.StoreContact.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 12).Value = Trim(Me.Address.Text)
       
        j = 0
       
        For i = 1 To 12
            If (IsNull(Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text)) Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text) = "" Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text) = "__/__/____") And _
               (IsNull(Trim(Me.Controls("DateEnd" & i).Text)) Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateEnd" & i).Text) = "" Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateEnd" & i).Text) = "__/__/____") And _
               (IsNull(Trim(Me.Controls("StoreOpen" & i).Text)) Or Trim(Me.Controls("StoreOpen" & i).Text) = "" Or Trim(Me.Controls("StoreOpen" & i).Text) = "__:__ __") And _
               (IsNull(Trim(Me.Controls("StoreClosed" & i).Text)) Or Trim(Me.Controls("StoreClosed" & i).Text) = "" Or Trim(Me.Controls("StoreClosed" & i).Text) = "__:__ __") Then
                j = j + 1
            Else
                mysheet.Cells(i + 3 - j, 13).Value = Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text)
                mysheet.Cells(i + 3 - j, 14).Value = Trim(Me.Controls("DateEnd" & i).Text)
                mysheet.Cells(i + 3 - j, 15).Value = Trim(Me.Controls("StoreOpen" & i).Text)
                mysheet.Cells(i + 3 - j, 16).Value = Trim(Me.Controls("StoreClosed" & i).Text)
            End If
        Next i
       
        mysheet.Application.Windows(Dir$(cdlg.filename)).Visible = True
        mysheet.Application.ActiveWorkbook.Save
        mysheet.Application.ActiveWorkbook.Close
        xlApp.Quit
       
        Set mysheet = Nothing
        MsgBox "Excel file was successfully created!", vbOKOnly, "Done!"
        Me.Command33.Enabled = True
        Me.Command34.Enabled = True


How can I show progress bar while this code is working? I'm using  Microsoft Common Controls Progress Bar. Thanks.

you put the progress bar on the form, say barProgress, and have it invisible


        barProgress.Min = 0
        barProgress.Value = 0
        barProgress.Max = 12
        barProgress.visible = true
        FileCopy SystemDir & "\Template.xls", cdlg.filename
       
        Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        Set mysheet = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(cdlg.filename).Sheets(1)
           
        mysheet.Cells(4, 1).Value = Trim(Me.StoreName.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 2).Value = Trim(Me.StoreNumber.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 3).Value = Trim(Me.StoreHours.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 4).Value = Trim(Me.SetPoint.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 5).Value = Trim(Me.Days.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 6).Value = Trim(Me.Employee.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 7).Value = Trim(Me.preOpen.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 8).Value = Trim(Me.Open.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 9).Value = Trim(Me.preClose.Text)

        mysheet.Cells(4, 12).Value = Trim(Me.Address.Text)
       
        j = 0
       
        For i = 1 To 12
           barProgress.Value = i
           doevents
            If (IsNull(Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text)) Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text) = "" Or Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text) = "__/__/____") And _

                mysheet.Cells(i + 3 - j, 13).Value = Trim(Me.Controls("DateStart" & i).Text)

Progressbar becomes visible but nothing is happening in it. Then it just disappears.

did you put the line doevents?
note that working on only 12 cells should not really need a progress bar that will be done very fast anyhow.


        barProgress.Min = 0
        barProgress.Value = 0
        barProgress.Max = 7
        barProgress.visible = true
        FileCopy SystemDir & "\Template.xls", cdlg.filename
       
        Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
        barProgress.Value = 1
        doevents
        Set mysheet = xlApp.Workbooks.Open(cdlg.filename).Sheets(1)
           
        barProgress.Value = 2
        doevents
        mysheet.Cells(4, 1).Value = Trim(Me.StoreName.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 2).Value = Trim(Me.StoreNumber.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 3).Value = Trim(Me.StoreHours.Text)
        mysheet.Cells(4, 4).Value = Trim(Me.SetPoint.Text)
