How to delay a process.

I am executing three processes:

       BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "AMEX.txt", conStockSelect,"AMEX");
       BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "NASDAQ.txt", conStockSelect,"NASDAQ");
       BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "NYSE.txt", conStockSelect,"NYSE");

 private void BuildSymbolWork1(string pstrSourceFile, SqlConnection pconStockSelect,string pstrMarketName)
        {
       
Do Stuff
}

The processes work, except that the processing never stops.

All is fine when I run in debug mode and set a break point before each BuildSymbolWork1()


The process continues forever when Start Without debugging.

How can I delay after each execution?

      BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "AMEX.txt", conStockSelect,"AMEX");

//Delay 5 seconds
       BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "NASDAQ.txt", conStockSelect,"NASDAQ");

//Delay 5 seconds

       BuildSymbolWork1(strSourcePath + "NYSE.txt", conStockSelect,"NYSE");

//Delay 5 seconds

Thanks

You can use Sleep method, for example:
Thread.Sleep(5000);//Delay 5 seconds
