    Default Waiting command button

    Just wondering how others may get around this.
    My form processes a pile of data, comparing various values.
    If it finds a difference then display it and wait for the user to click a "Continue" button.
    But I don't want a msgbox.

    What else does the same job? Ideally just a button that waits to be pressed.
    I've sort of accomplished it using a modal second Form with no caption bar and one command button.
    But I get the Form outline as well as the button. It works but could look better.

    I have some convoluted ideas on how to do this with an extra visible:=false button on the form, a global variable, and a helper function... but it seems like way more effort than it's worth.

    It sounds like your intent here is to make the user aware of all the times the macro came across a disconnect -- wouldn't it be easier to just keep track of those times and print them all at once to a final userform or worksheet once complete?

    That's true, it's a design/aesthetic thing open to change. It seemed a good idea but not worth a lot of effort.
    The plan was to make changes on the fly, but it could all be done as you suggest.
    I'll try it out and see which feels 'best'.
    Thanks.
