Start a process after form opens and displays?

Is there a way to get a form to start a process after the form opens and is
visible to the user?

When I start the process in the form_open event, the form doesn't display
until the process completes. I would like to let the user know something is
happening as soon as the process starts.

I am importing records from another application, and the import form is the
startup form. It notifies the user when done, but I would like to let them
know while the import is in progress.

Thanks

Thanks for replying.
I put the procedure into form load, but it still runs before the form
displays.

So I tried putting it into all of the following:
After layout
Before render
After render
After final render

The process never started!
What do these mean if they are never triggered?

So I will keep adding it to events until one displays the page before
starting the procedure.

Thanks again.

The Render-related events are for Chart objects, the Layout-related events
are for PivotChart objects.

Put a DoEvents after you open the form.
