    Would anyone care to elaborate on the usage of Doevents? As I understand it now, Do Events can be executed in a procedure. In a specific procedure that I would like to pause, I want some variables to be user defined before it continues to execute the remaining code in the procedure.

    Are there any other pausing methodologies for delaying the execution of specific code (usually at the end of a procedure)?

    DoEvents will process the current events before it and when they are done, go to the next processes that will occur.

    Depending on how long this is going to take, it may pause for a millisecond or more. But it doesn't always. If you want a delay, you can use the Sleep api function.

    Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" _
    (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)   
    Call Sleep(1000) 'delay 1 second

    Thanx Micheal

    Thank you Matthew.

    I know enough about VB to know that I need to know more OR that I need people like you with experience and know how. I have always (well since I've seen you posts) been impressed on your Programming competentcies. Please consider consults on the side. I thank you for your examples.
