Hi.  I really liked your VBA Application.StatusBar.

I updated it a bit so it could be called as a procedure.

Thanks a lot.

showStatus Current, Total, "  Process Running: "

Private Sub showStatus(Current As Integer, lastrow As Integer, Topic As String)
Dim NumberOfBars As Integer
Dim pctDone As Integer

NumberOfBars = 50
'Application.StatusBar = "[" & Space(NumberOfBars) & "]"

' Display and update Status Bar
    CurrentStatus = Int((Current / lastrow) * NumberOfBars)
    pctDone = Round(CurrentStatus / NumberOfBars * 100, 0)
    Application.StatusBar = Topic & " [" & String(CurrentStatus, "|") & _
                            Space(NumberOfBars - CurrentStatus) & "]" & _
                            " " & pctDone & "% Complete"

' Clear the Status Bar when you're done
'    If Current = Total Then Application.StatusBar = ""

End Sub

This is really great, howdykeith! Thank you so much for sharing! It's really helpful to have a callable procedure for updating the status bar instead of tinkering with a static macro. It makes it easier to incorporate into an existing VBA macro, too. I'm sure this will help a lot of people. :-)
