Time a form to only show for 5 seconds

I know there is a timer event, but when the main form opens, I want it to only show for 5 seconds and then kick off a process, but can this be done in the form open event?

Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    strUserId = VBUserName
       
'STOP HERE FOR FIVE SECONDS BEFORE CALLING THE PROCESS


    Call lblLMRDatabases_Click
End Sub

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Set the timer interval to 5000

and add this to the On Timer event

Docmd.close acform, me.name

Actually if you need to start the process after the 5 seconds, place both lines of code in the Timer event, not the Open Event:



    Call lblLMRDatabases_Click
   Docmd.close acform, me.name
