Pausing subroutine

Pausing subroutine

(OP)
Public Declare Function GetTickCount Lib "kernel32" () As Long

Public Sub wait(ByVal dblMilliseconds As Double)
Dim dblStart As Double
Dim dblEnd As Double
Dim dblTickCount As Double

dblTickCount = GetTickCount()
dblStart = GetTickCount()
dblEnd = GetTickCount + dblMilliseconds

Do
DoEvents
dblTickCount = GetTickCount()
Loop Until dblTickCount > dblEnd Or dblTickCount < dblStart


End Sub

I found this in another post and it works. However, when I tried to use it, I found that all execution in any other subroutine also stops. I need to stop processing the current routine while others complete. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Pausing subroutine

You could use Sleep

CODE

Public Declare sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal ms as Long)

Public Sub wait(ByVal ms As long)
   for count = 0 to ms step 100
      DoEvents
      Sleep 100
   next
End Sub
