Description thomas.lange 2006-08-22 10:10:56 UTC
If you have a loop (a long one or an endless loop) in Basic that shows a message
window (either via print or msgbox) in each iteration, it is impossible to stop
that macro because the stop button can not be pressed since always a new message
box needs to be closed.

Really annoying but difficult to fix as a MessageBox is modal per definition.
VB hat the same problem. STARTED

Solution by comouws does not work when two boxes are linked by a loop.
