A97: Keyword 'show' - what is that exactly?

P: n/a
MLH
Is there a 'show' keyword command in Access 97?
It shows up at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q147886/
in the following code snippet...

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim msg As String ' Status information.
Dim nl As String ' New-line.
nl = Chr$(13) + Chr$(10) ' New-line.

Show
MousePointer = 11 ' Hourglass.

It fails to compile for me. Access 97 pukes & reports
there's no such function. Who is right - Microsoft Access
or Microsoft website?

At the bottom of that article, it says it applies to Visual Basic, not
Access/VBA.

Ahaa! That's where I went astray. I did find this on a Microsoft
website. OK, it simply is not designed to work with Access 97.
I can live with that. Most of the code worked form me. I rem'd
out the offending lines and used pretty much all the rest.

Many thx!

If do you want it on, it's just

DoCmd.Hourglass True
