Hi, the macro i need to develop will extract data from an external software. That particular software is quite slow, so the problem i face is that the macro is performing too fast for the software. I thus need something to pause the macro for a few seconds, so i could extract updated values.

Any idea ?!

Thanks !

Something like

Code:
Sub Wait_Awhile(iSeconds As Integer)
	Dim  waitTime
	'calculate the time to wait until
	waitTime = Now() + TimeSerial(0, 0, iSeconds)
	Application.Wait waitTime
End Sub
