I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Actually, I'm a bit off on that, it's:

<ret value> = Syscmd(acSysCmdSetStatus,"Text")


 <ret value> = Syscmd(acSysCmdClearStatus)

 clears the status text.

 Never used it myself<g>

yikes, one more correction: A bar is:

varReturn = SysCmd(acSysCmdUpdateMeter, X)

What I gave you before was for text.
