I found on ee an interesting way of setting a msgbox to time out but need just a little more help.
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_21506364.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+function+msgbox

So....I would need to create a msgbox named myExitMessage? Where would the Function Call be fired?

*****************
Create a form with this code on the OnTimer event:

myTime = myTime + 1
myExitMessage

On the OnOpen event, have this:

myTime = 1

In teh declarations (after option explicit at the top of teh form module) have this:

Private myTime as Long

Then add this function

Function myExitMessage()
If myTime >= 60000  then     '1 minute
'close form code
End if
End Function

How about this...

Dim objShell=CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
objShell.Popup "This message will disappear in 5 seconds", 5
