how do I refresh a VB Label?

how do I refresh a label that is inside a processing loop?


For row_count = 15 To Sheets("Bidresults").Range("a15").End(xlDown).Row
Sheets("scrape").Cells(row_count, 1).Value = Sheets("Bidresults").Cells(row_count, ColumnNames(1, 2)).Value
Sheets("scrape").Cells(row_count, 2).Value = Sheets("Bidresults").Cells(row_count, ColumnNames(2, 2)).Value
Label1.Caption = "Scraping " & row_count & " of " & Sheets("Bidresults").Range("a15").End(xlDown).Row
Next


Label1 should display an active count each time through the loop, but it shows nothing until the last iteration.  VB.net uses a "refresh" property.  How can I do this in excel?

Use DoEvents:

For row_count = 15 To Sheets("Bidresults").Range("a15").End(xlDown).Row
Sheets("scrape").Cells(row_count, 1).Value = Sheets("Bidresults").Cells(row_count, ColumnNames(1, 2)).Value
Sheets("scrape").Cells(row_count, 2).Value = Sheets("Bidresults").Cells(row_count, ColumnNames(2, 2)).Value
Label1.Caption = "Scraping " & row_count & " of " & Sheets("Bidresults").Range("a15").End(xlDown).Row
DoEvents
Next
