I have a complex spreadsheet that takes up to 15 seconds to calculate. I'd like to show a Msgbox or Userform to display a custom message during calculation & have it disappear when calculation is complete.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

A messagebox will stop your code until it's pressed. You could always use the statusbar.
Code:
    Application.StatusBar = "Your message here"
    'code goes here
    Application.StatusBar = False

Thanks but users tend not to notice the status bar. Could I use a form?
