Hi There,

I've not seen a real solution to this (or at least one that I've truly understood) so I thought perhaps I would throw it out there and see if anyone here has done it.  I'm wondering if there is a good way of letting the user know when a form/data is loading?  I've done the docmd.hourglass true thing, but I wondered if there was a way to display a form or maybe something better to let them know it's working in the background?

Thanks!

Sarah

I have an article on Progress Bars that might help.  Provides some ideas and a sample form that you can customize for your purposes.

Sarah,

 Couple of things you can do:

1. Use the system bar at the bottom to put up a notice.

2. Use a light weight form that you display first as a progress bar or "splash" screen while your waiting for something to happen.

 I like #2 as I find many don't think to look at the bottom of the screen when something is not happening.

 So in reference to #2, I've attached a small sample DB which has a progress bar class (a form), which you can call in a number of ways.

Sarah,

 We can un-accept the question if you'd like to close it out differently and give fyed the solution and/or split points between us.

Sarah,

I've got no problem with the current point distribution, don't worry about it.  My guess is that Jim's and my solutions are not that much different.
