frmPBar has one label lblScroller. While I am searching through Excel REcords in frmFriends, I want the lblScroller to increment like a progress bar and tell the user that proceesing is being done. To do this in frmFriends I want to measure the width of lblScroller, which is in frmPBar. How to call in frmFriends, the control which is on frmPBar. Later on, I will call that label from frmKithAndKin and also from frmVIPs. Any suggestion, appreciated. I am new to VB.
