Hi Experts.   I have a module that creates a new thread and need to take the output from that thread to update textboxes on a form.   Usual methods dont work and I've tried creating an update sub on the form and sending the data to that first but this also doesnt work.  

From research on Google I see that this is a known issue usually resolved with a backgroundworker. Unfortunately, I cant seem to find any examples that arnt horrendously complicated.   Could someone please supply an example I can get started with?  

Its literally just appending a few variables to a multiline textbox and three normal textboxes.  Any help would be appreciated.
