Cannot stop code with tight loop using ctrl-break

I  cannot get code with a tight loop (series of ADODB commands) to stop when I hit ctrl-break unless I put in a DoEvents statement to execute every 100 iterations of the loop. When the code does stop it is always on the DoEvents statement and the CPU is still running at 100% and I cannot step forward from the DoEvents statement, only continue execution with F5. Any ideas on how to be able to stop code in tight loops using ctrl-break and be able to step forward fronm the stopping point?

I need the flexibility of using a user-initiated action rather than satisfacyion of a preset condition, which will certainly work.
