    Unanswered: Show up in the Form Caption

    I have defined a label -- lblStatus in my Form (the name of the form is frmMail)

    I have a modules which the Form calls up.

    I want to see the progress of the modules. Say I have 10 records in the table and I want to see the label -- lblStatus in the From to print out 1 and then 2 and then 3 and so for.

    In the moduls, I first defined lngcount

    Dim lngCount As Long
    lngCount = 0
    Here are my two lines inside a Do Until loop

    lngCount = lngCount + 1

    Forms!frmMail!lblStatus.Caption = lngCount


    Needless to say, I don't get want I want. It only print out the final number on the label lblStatus. That is 10.

    Can anyone tell me what did I do wrong?

    You could try changing Forms!frmMail!lblStatus to an unbound text box then

    Forms!frmMail!lblStatus ="Record Number: " & lngCount


    The following is some code that I use to display the progress of record manipulations

    This displays every 100th record counter e.g. 100 200 etc on the status bar and when finished it displays a message showing the total number of records added.

    countem is the number of records

    dim countem


    Do Until EOF(1)

    < various lines of codes then>

    countem = countem + 1
    If countem / 100 = Int(countem / 100) Then
    Dim sttext As String
    sttext = "Count = " & countem
    DoCmd.Echo False, sttext
    End If
    < various lines of codes then>
    Close #1
    Set dbs = Nothing
    DoCmd.Echo True

    MsgBox countem & " records added"

    You may also try issuing a repaint command (Forms!MyFormName.repaint) after each increment in the counter.

    This does the trick

    Forms!frmMail!txtStatus = "Record Number: " & lngCount

    Thank you both very very much!!!
