Some other problems are not under your control. How to toggle Show/Hide hidden files in Windows through command line? This property holds a (usually short) message about the error number. If you're in the camp that finds error handling during the development phase too invasive, you can add a generic handler and comment it out until you're ready for it.

Some other errors depend on the platform that is running the application (the operating system, the processor, the version of the application, the (available) memory, etc).

During the development stage, this basic handler can be helpful (or not; see Tip #3). Also it is good idea to tell the user that an error has occured. Here is an example: Private Sub cmdCalculate_Click() On Error GoTo WrongValue Dim HourlySalary As Double, WeeklyTime As Double Dim WeeklySalary As Double ' One of these two lines could produce an Vba Exit Sub Sub Something() On Error GoTo Err_Handler ' Do your stuff here Exit_This_Sub: Exit Sub Err_Handler: Resume Exit_This_Sub End Sub -- Fred Please reply only to this newsgroup.

These best practices will help ensure your apps run as intended, without a hitch. It instructs to VBA to essentially ignore the error and resume execution on the next line of code.

Be sure to insert the GoTo 0 statement as early as possible. To identify the application that caused an error, you can inquire about the value of this property. How to serve your dragon? While this may be acceptable, even desirable, in a development environment, it is not acceptable to the end user in a production environment.

It simply instructs VBA to continue as if no error occured. The alternative is to create your own message in the language you easily understand, as we did earlier. If the calling procedure's error handler is also active, control passes back through previous calling procedures until an enabled, but inactive, error handler is found.

To programmatically display something, such as a string, in the Immediate window, the Debug object provides the Print method. This might be, for instance, when the nature of an error that is generated repetitively or recursively might cause some stack corruption or leak. Examples: if the numbers are in column B instead of column A; or if a number like 65535 was entered, and rows cannot be inserted "off the sheet". When there is an error-handling routine, the debugger executes it, which can make debugging more difficult.
