folks

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
Sheets(2).Range("A3:IV65536").ClearContents

    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
    Dim ORACLE_PASSWORD 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
       
 
       
            DoEvents
            lngCount = lngCount + 1
            strCount = Trim(Str(lngCount))
       
           
            If Not IsNull(oRsOracle.Fields(0).Value) Then
                strTemp = oRsOracle.Fields(0).Value
           Else
                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
            Else
                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
            Else
               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
            Else
               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
            Else
               strTemp = ""
            End If
            If strTemp = "" Then strTemp = "Status"
            Sheet2.Range("E" & strCount).FormulaR1C1 = strTemp
           
            oRsOracle.MoveNext
    Loop
    oConOracle.Close
    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

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

            '......

       loop
      MyProgress.Hidden = true

Open in new window


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