Progress Bar on Moving Table Data

I try to include a progress bar while moving data from one server table to another table in another server. So i had the following code testing out,


wondering if / will the progress bar being execute based on the completion of data transfer where i put within the code bolded?  ??

string query  = ...;
string conn = ...;
string conn2 = ...;
static int recordcount = 0;
SqlDataReader reader;
 
this.pbar1 = new System.Winforms.ProgressBar();
pbar1.Visible = true;
pbar1.Maximum = recordcount;
pbar1.Minimum = 1;
pbar1.Value = 1;
pbar1.Step = 1;
 
using (reader = new SqlCommand(query, conn).ExecuteReader())
{
          if (reader.HasRows)
          {
                 recordcount = reader.Count;    
 
                 while (reader.Read())
                 {
                        string id = reader.GetString(reader.GetOrdinal("SalesID"));
                        ..
 
                        using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(conn2))
                        {
                                 con.Open();
                                 try
                                 {
                                        using (SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO saletable VALUES(@saleid, @saletotal , @saledatetime)", con))
                                        {
                                                  command.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("saleid", id));
                                                  ...
                                        command.ExecuteNonQuery();
                                        pbar1.performStep();
                                        }
                                  }
                                  catch
                                  {
                                  }
 
                         }
                        
}

To accuratly set the progress bar you need to 1st set the max value on the progress bar... so when you perform the reader.Count set that to the progress bar so it knows what is considered 100%
