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 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.
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.
