I am looking for VBA code sample for the following situation....


My excel code currently does a REFRESH ALL DATA. At which point in the lower left is displayed the message, "RUNNING BACKGROUND QUERY ... (CLICK HERE TO CANCEL)". Also later at times when I refresh, I get a message, "CALCULATING: (4 PROCESSOR(S)): ##%"....

Is there a was in VBA to have my code pause until these messages disappear? These messages go away on there own with time & patients.

I want a closed loop solution and don't want to input a pause unless there is a way to check TRUE/FALSE if either message is displayed (is preferred).


Thanks,


BennyB

P.S. Win7 64, Office 2013 32bit.

With RefreshAll, your code is most likely resuming the next lines before all connections are refreshed.

Instead, try refreshing each connection (one by one). The code should wait until refresh is completed before resuming the next line. If you have multiple connections, you could loop through all connections with something to this effect:

Code:
Dim Conn As WorkbookConnection

For Each Conn In ThisWorkbook.Connections
    Conn.Refresh
Next Conn
