    Hi,

    I have a series of reports that take anywhere between 2 seconds and 20 seconds to load. I would like the option of having a progress bar, once someone has clicked on a command button to load the report.

    Any ideas on how to achieve this?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    If you make the status bar visible it will show a progress if the reason your report takes a long time to load is because the query behind the report takes a while to run. The usefullness of the status bar depends on the version you are using however.

    A recent edition of Access Watch had some discussion about how to do this.

    You can find a demo database at Helen Feddema's Access Archon website.
    Scroll down to No 181.
