Don't Forget That Mouse Pointer

If you turn the mouse pointer into an hourglass (and back to normal) in a routine with error handling, don't forget to turn the mouse pointer back to normal in the error-handler section. Otherwise, the program might look busy, but actually be done:

 
Private Function CalcTotal() As Long
	On Error GoTo ProcErr

	Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
	'
	'Code that may raise error
	'
	Screen.MousePointer = vbNormal
	Exit Function 'Don't go into error handler

ProcErr:
	Screen.MousePointer = vbNormal
	'
	'Error handling code
	'
End Function
