Not with a msgbox, however you could use another form to do that or show/hide a control on the form in which it is running. just remember to DoEvents

You can keep a message at the start of code like below
"Please wait as the code is running in background.You will get a confirmation message once it is finished."
Once the code is completed its execution, keep another message box at the end of code block for confirmation.

Attached a sample progress bar form that you may find useful.

Dale Fye also has a nice article on progress bars here on EE.
