display a change in document before VBA script ends

I have the following code:
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("Status").Range.Text = "Clearing All Unneeded Files - Please wait"
ClearAllUneededFiles

Open in new window

The bookmark change does not display until after the subroutine ClearAllUneededFiles completes.  How do I display the bookmark change before running ClearAllUneededFiles?  

TIA

I kinda did the same thing you suggested only different:

ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("Status").Range.Text = "Clearing Unneeded Files - Please wait"
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:01"), "ClearAllUneededFiles"
