progress bar in macro populating sheets from a selected listbox value

Posted on 2014-01-22
Last Modified: 2014-01-29

I have a listbox where if a item is selected in the listbox , a call gets made to the oracle db and downloads the associated records into sheet2

how though do I call up a progress bar to show status on the time when data is being downloaded and populated into the sheet

keen for your thoughts

here is my code:

Private Sub ListBox1_Click()

'Dim r As Long
'r = Sheet1.Range("A1").Offset(Sheet1.Rows.Count - 2, 0).End(xlUp).Row
MsgBox "Select * from Workorder where  " & ListBox1.Value & ""
Sheets(2).Range("A1").Value = "Select * from projects where " & ListBox1.Value

    Dim strConOracle As String
    Dim strTemp As String
    Dim oConOracle, oRsOracle
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim lngCount As Long
    Dim strCount As String
    Dim DBNAME As String
    Dim HOST As String
    Dim ORACLE_USER_NAME As String
    ORACLE_PASSWORD = Range("D2").Value
    DBNAME = Range("A2").Value
    HOST = Range("B2").Value
    ORACLE_USER_NAME = Range("C2").Value

    strConOracle = "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle}; CONNECTSTRING=(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)"
    strConOracle = strConOracle & "(HOST=" & HOST & ")(PORT=1521))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=" & DBNAME
    strConOracle = strConOracle & "))); uid=" & ORACLE_USER_NAME & " ;pwd=" & ORACLE_PASSWORD & ";"
    Set oConOracle = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Set oRsOracle = CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
    oConOracle.Open strConOracle
strSQL = "SELECT task,description,owner from projects WHERE  " & ListBox1.Value & ""

    Set oRsOracle = oConOracle.Execute(strSQL)

    lngCount = 2
        Do While Not oRsOracle.EOF
            lngCount = lngCount + 1
            strCount = Trim(Str(lngCount))
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(0).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(0).Value
                strTemp = ""
            End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "Not Captured"
            Sheet2.Range("A" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(1).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(1).Value
                strTemp = ""
           End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "Not Populated"
            Sheet2.Range("B" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(2).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(2).Value
               strTemp = ""
            End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "Sched Start"
            Sheet2.Range("C" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(3).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(3).Value
               strTemp = ""
            End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "No Sched Finish"
            Sheet2.Range("D" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(4).Value
               strTemp = ""
            End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "Status"
            Sheet2.Range("E" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
    Set oRsOracle = Nothing
    Set oConOracle = Nothing

actually i think i misread your q somewhat.....

have a look at the second link...

it uses displays a userform while the process occurs and this form can be updated to show progress if desired. then unloaded.
to test, create a new userform <MyProgress> and add a text box to it

    lngCount = 2
        Do While Not oRsOracle.EOF
            lngCount = lngCount + 1
            if lngCount Mod 10 = 0 then
                   MyProgress.textbox1.text = MyProgress.textbox1.text & "#"
            end if


      MyProgress.Hidden = true

Open in new window

it should show a line of ### move as progress occurs.  Can add an abort button if needed.
