Basic Error handling - hide an Access error message or substitute your own by elizabeth
Posted: 3 Aug 00

Use this type of construction for simple error handling.

On Error GoTo Err_ModuleName

    ' VBA statements

Exit_ModuleName:
    Exit Sub

Err_ModuleName:
    If Err.Number = 1234 then           ' trapping for specific error, or use case stmts
        ' MsgBox or other statements
     Else
         MsgBox Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
     End if
     Resume Exit_ModuleName

Then under Tools Options (in the VB window, not the Db window) you select "Break on unhandled errors" (I think this is the default).
