displaying message while executing procedure

What's the easiest way to display a message during a procedure (and closing it when the procedure is done) ?(without buttoms)

RE: displaying message while executing procedure

I like to use a special no-border popup form to which I pass the message via OpenArgs:
    DoCmd.OpenForm "InfoBox", , , , , , vbCrLf & "Please wait..."

The DoEvents helps ensure that the form has a chance to appear before your subsequent code starts eating up all the CPU time.

When you're done, just close it with:
    DoCmd.Close acForm, "InfoBox"

You can even get fancy and let the InfoBox form figure out how to center the message vertically.
