We have a VBA in Outlook 2010 that does various loops searching.  One loop in particular takes 1 or 2 minutes to go thru.  We want display a message to the user while is running the loops so they know that there is something going on.

We created the form and gave it the message but it doesn't display or halts.

You can call a UserForm with some text in a label and display it, so:
UserForm1.Show vbModeless
'do your processing
UserForm1.Hide

Open in new window

Yes of course, forgot vbModeless.  It workes but it blinks away super fast and can't display the message properly (can't be read).

Any suggestion to maintain the form displayed and readable?

I suspect that something in your macro might be changing the active window.

Firstly I would try adjusting the use of DoEvents in your code.

You are correct, the windows was within the loop.  Took it out and it works!

Thanx!!
