Progress Bar

Display a Custom Progress Bar

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how to use the Microsoft ActiveX ProgressBar control that comes with Access. I don't like using external controls, however. So, I'll teach you how to create your own custom progress bar using a text box.

Melissa from San Diego, CA (A Learning Connection Member) asks: I have a monthly report that I run which requires a series of action queries, imports, and exports that takes forever. Is there any way I can show some kind of a progress bar so I know how far along it is?


I'll show you how to create a cool-looking 3D progress bar with shadowing, the percent complete, and an ABORT button to cancel the loop.
