Access query to click checkbox once complete

Hi All,

I have an access dashboard that run about 8 queries.  When a user clicks on each button to run each query, I'd like a checkbox to be checked once the query completes.  The reason is because some of the queries take a long time to complete.  Or if anyone has another suggestion on showing the progress of each query I'd appreciate it.

I'm working from my iPad, so cannot pull up any code examples, so I don't have values for the appropriate error codes that might be generated during these queries.

Are the checkboxes bound to fields in a table, or unbound.  Generally I use code similar to:
Private Sub cmd_ProcessQueries_Click

    Dim db as DAO.database
    Dim bComplete as boolean

    On Error Goto ProcError

    set db = currentdb

    bComplete = true
    db.execute "Query1", dbfailonerror
    me.chk_Query1 = bComplete

    bComplete = true
    db.execute "Query2", dbfailonerror
    me.chk_Query2 = bComplete

    bComplete = true
    db.execute "Query3", dbfailonerror
    me.chk_Query3 = bComplete

    On Error Resume next
    set db = nothing
    Exit Sub
    Select Case Err.Number
        Case  X, Y, Z  'insert error codes
            bComplete = False
            Resume Next
        Case Else
            msgbox err.number & vbcrlf & err.description, vbOkOnly
            Resume ProcExit
    End Select

End Sub

This particular error handling would allow successive queries to process even though a previous query did not process properly.  You might want to modify that logic.

you can use a label place besides each command button.

set the following properties of the label
visible NO
fontname Wingdings

in click event of the button, place codes like this

private sub btn_click()

'run your query here

'show the check mark

end sub
