Why doesn't my messages show on the screen?

Regardless of whether you call the MESSAGE() built-in with ACKNOWLEDGE, NO_ACKNOWLEDGE, or with no mode specification at all, your message may or may not be displayed. This is because messages are displayed asynchronously. To display messages immediately, use the SYNCHRONIZE build-in:

message('...'); synchronize;

This can also be used to execute a query while the user is looking at the results of a previous query.
