    Re: quiting an infinite loop


    If you are in an infinite loop, it is pretty tricky to quit. Try pressing
    the stop button in VB several times, or press Ctrl-Break several times.
    Another possibility is to click in your code to try to set a breakpoint.
    If your loop is prone to this problem, put a DoEvents command in the middle
    of the loop. Remove the command when you have fixed the problem.

    I hope your loop eventually ends.
