VBA How To

A simple error handling technique for VB/VBA apps by taupirho
Posted: 29 Jun 04 (Edited 19 May 05)

You should include error handling in all your VB or VBA code. Here's a simple but effective way to do so.

Private Sub CommandButton_Click()

On Error GoTo err_handler

'All your main code goes below


' Now the error handling bit

Exit Sub

MsgBox _
"An unexpected error has been detected" & Chr(13) & _
"Description is: " & Err.Number & ", " & Err.Description & Chr(13) & _
"Module is: commandbutton_click" & Chr(13) & _
"Please note the above details before contacting support"
Resume endit

End Sub

One of the good things about doing it this way is that the error handling code is the same for every module with the exception of the Module is: part of the msgbox statement. It's simply a matter of cutting and pasting the code to your other modules. Easy and effective.
