Creating a CSV file from a button on a MS Access Form

I have a button on a from that when pressed, creates an export CSV file and saves it out on a network share.  However, my end users are not notified if the export is finished.

Is there a way to present a message back stating that the export has taken place and/or completed?

I'm confused, can't you just throw up a message after the export?

Does the export take a long time?

If it's immediate then you can just add a msgbox to the button code you are already using.

I agree with peter, just add a msgbox as the last line in the click event of your export button.  Something like:

    msgbox "Export complete"

How are you creating the CSV?  If it takes a while to run, and you are writing the entries one line at a time to a text file, then you might also want to look at some sort of progress bar, to keep your users informed of the progress of the process.
