Message box not working all of the time

SteveL13 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-05
I have a strange thing happening with a message box.  Here is the code of an onclick event of a command button:

    DoCmd.SetWarnings False

    DoCmd.RunSavedImportExport "ImportEstimateWon"
    DoCmd.RunSavedImportExport "EstimateWonOutbuys"

    DoCmd.SetWarnings True

    MsgBox "Estimate imported.  Proceed to job schedule.  Be sure to check for outside purchase information."

The problem is this... if there is no "EstimateWonOutbuys" import the message box does not appear.  If both imports take place then the message box does appear.  I need it to appear in either case.  There are cases where there is no import to be done for "EstimateWonOutbuys".
