Hi Everyone,

I have an Access 2007 application where I have a form called a "CoverSheet" that loads.
I have a Label on the form that flashes in Red with a Timer on the load event set to an interval "500".  The Message that flashes is "Check for New Stores or changes to stores".

However I want this flashining to cease after about 2 minutes and not flash any longer.
What is the coding to do this or property to do this?  I just do not want the flashing to continue all of the time.  When the user sees it, I want it turned off and not just keep flashing, becuase the user will come back to this coversheet for other things and the coversheet remains open while the application is running.
