Help with a loop statement in VBA

Hi all.  I have some code that screenscrapes some data.  What happens is a screen brings up some data, say all of my employees, then it checks to see if there is another sheet of employees.  If the bottom of the screen says 'done' i want the code to stop.  Unfortunetly, even thought the screen says 'done' it finishes the code before ending the loop.  

To be honest I don't even know if a loop statement is correct.  But below is an example of the code.  As you can see, it goes through the whole loop.  I need to know how to break the loop at the end of each section.  The comment 'Check for More Employees.. is where the condition should look for "Done" and stop processing.  Make sense?

 Do Until ....area(1, 2) = "Done"
             
'Emp Info 1
            E1 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 2
            E2 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 3
            E3 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 4
            E4 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 5
            E5 = Trim(Emp)

'Check for More Employees            
...SendKeys ("<NEXT>")

'Emp Info 6
            E6 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 7
            E7 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 8
            E8 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 9
            E9 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 10
            E10 = Trim(Emp)

'Check for More Employees            
...SendKeys ("<NEXT>")
       
'Emp Info 11
            E11 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 12
            E12 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 13
            E13 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 14
            E14 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 15
            E15 = Trim(Emp)

'Check for More Employees            
...SendKeys ("<NEXT>")
       
'Emp Info 16
            E16 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 17
            E17 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 18
            E18 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 19
            E19 = Trim(Emp)
'Emp Info 20
            E20 = Trim(Emp)

In the section where you want the loop to stop running put in an if statement.  If it comes back true then exit do


If [condition] Then Exit Do
