This has got to be simple, but .... I've created an Unbound Text box on a form, txtCalculating = "Calculating, Please Wait ....", and Visible = NO. In the OnClick event of a command button I simply have:
Me.txtCalculating.Visible = True
' Do some Calculations here
.My calculations are complete and now
The text never appeared to be visible, so, I removed the Visible=False and lo and behold, after the calculation is completed - bingo the text becomes visible. In other words the .Visible command is processed after the calculations. Whassup ?
