VB.NET - Windows form, a timer or pause

Hello experts,

I created a windows application that goes either update/insert to a database.  Once it does this, the database has a few triggers that runs and update a couple of things.  It normally takes about 5 seconds for it to complete.  Is there a way I can pause for like 5 seconds before it continues the next line of code to update/insert another table?

Somehow you need a delay function correct?
Dim StartTime As Date
                StartTime = Now
                While DateDiff("s", StartTime, Now) < 5
                End While

Can you tell more about your code? Maybe there is a simpler more elegant solution than using wait commands. (Something with threads, ...)

Thanks that's all I needed.  Just to pause for a few seconds to let the job complete.
