Hi guys

I've been trying to research how I could add a progress bar to an existing macro of mine but I can't seem to find a reliable tutorial (probably just my poor understanding!). I was wondering if anyone would be able to link me to or help me out with a simple progress indicator or progress bar that I could apply to my following Macro code? :biggrin: I would be EXTREMELY grateful! The macro isn't particular onerous but can take a while sometimes, so I thought a nice progress bar/indicator might look fancy! I would also like to understand the logic behind this so I can apply it to other macros that I use that are more comprehensive. Thank you so much for reading.

Code:
Sub BOMTest()


' Get customer workbook...
Dim customerBook As Workbook
Dim filter As String
Dim caption As String
Dim customerFilename As String
Dim customerWorkbook As Workbook
Dim targetWorkbook As Workbook


Dim aCount As Integer, msg As String
Const msg1 = "The BOM has been imported!" & vbCr & vbCr
Const msg2 = " item(s) could not be found." & vbCr & vbCr & "Please update the 'Equipment Cost Lookup' sheet to add the pricing for the missing product code(s) and then try again."
Const msg3 = "All items have been successfully imported."






' make weak assumption that active workbook is the target
Set targetWorkbook = Application.ActiveWorkbook




' get the customer workbook
filter = "Text files (*.xlsx),*.xlsx"
caption = "Please select the BOM "
customerFilename = Application.GetOpenFilename(filter, , caption)




Set customerWorkbook = Application.Workbooks.Open(customerFilename)




' assume range is A1 - C10 in sheet1
' copy data from customer to target workbook
Dim targetSheet As Worksheet
Set targetSheet = targetWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
Dim sourceSheet As Worksheet
Set sourceSheet = customerWorkbook.Worksheets(1)




targetSheet.Range("F14", "I48").Value = sourceSheet.Range("A2", "K48").Value




' Close customer workbook
customerWorkbook.Close




targetSheet.Range("F7").Value = customerFilename




aCount = WorksheetFunction.CountIfs(Sheets("Dashboard").Range("J14:J64"), "Item Not Found", Sheets("Dashboard").Range("I14:I64"), ">0")
If aCount = 0 Then msg = msg1 & msg3 Else msg = msg1 & aCount & msg2
MsgBox msg, vbInformation
End Sub

Pulling this from an old project, so hopefully it works out for you!
I think I found this code somewhere, so sorry I don't remember where to give attribution to.

On a UserForm, I have a label called labelExportProgress . Back Color is red and it's inside a square box called exportProgress to give the 'outline' of the progress bar, along with the % on top.
The code to 'increase' the bar is
Code:
Sub UpdateProgressBar(PctDone As Single)
    With UserForm1


        'Update the Caption property of the Frame control.
        .exportProgress.Caption = Format(PctDone, "0%")


        'Widen the Label control.
        .labelExportProgress.Width = PctDone * _
            (.exportProgress.Width - 10)
    End With


    'The DoEvents allows the UserForm to update.
    DoEvents
End Sub
Within the other code I know how many I'm looping through total, and keep track of how many I've done, then update the progress bar
Code:
'Update the percentage completed.
            percentProgress = counter / numberOfFilesInFolder
            counter = counter + 1
            'Call subroutine that updates the progress bar.
            UpdateProgressBar percentProgress
After the code ends, sometimes the progress bar is a little wonky (slightly not 100%, etc), so I just set to 100% after everything completes
Code:
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
UpdateProgressBar (1) 'Set to 100% complete
