2007 Form repaint issue

Here is the situtation. I have a form that when a button is clicked it runs a pretty extensive set of modules and procedures to pull in data and update the form. As a way of informing the user to the progress of the process I update the form's caption, so it is like a steady stream of what is happening behind the scenes. I have a repaint after everytime it updates the caption. In Access 2003 this worked fine, in 2007 the form seems to hang, and sometimes the application goes blank. When the entire process completes the form repaints. Same exact code and database running in 2003 where it works, 2007 there is the repaint issue. Has anyone seen this? If so, does anyone know of how to get access to repaint the form?
