How to display messages when a macro is running multiple queries

P: 1
I have a macro that runs multiple queries. (using Access 2007)

I want to display on the status bar which query is running so I know where it's at in the process (the macro runs 47 queries).

I've tried Echo on, Echo off, added status bar text. All I get is the hourglass and maybe that little green progress bar, but I don't know which query is running.

Anyone know a way to display different messages while the macro is running?

Are the queries ran in series or are the queries subqueries?

If you look in Context-Sensitive Help for "Echo" (from Application.Echo()) you'll see the parameter bstrStatusBarText. Be very careful with using Echo(False) though. It can be very confusing when nothing you do shows on the screen - especially confusing when the code has stopped running.

Don't UI updates not happen until the end of code? Or is it different for macros? You'll probably have to use an asynchronous approach to running your queries.

Only if you set it to False. I used to use that method until I designed myself a [frmProgress} form to allow the list of jobs to be listed and ticked off as the jobs progressed.
