When you click OK to run the simulation, a window that contains a progress bar and a Stop Early button appears. The number of the sample being simulated is shown above the progress bar. If you click Stop Early, the simulated values that have been computed up to that point are presented in a Simulate Results table. The window also shows you which analyses are being run at any given time.
