VB source "FILE", "LINE" information

In "C" you can use __FILE__ and __LINE__ to let the precompiler insert the source filename and source linenumber in that spot in your code. Does VB have something similar ??
I want to write a generic "Error logging" function that includes this information in the error entry. On the call to the LogError function I want to include the source filename and the line number (or at maybe the current function or sub name ?).
eg.
Call LogError(__FILE__, __LINE__, some, other, parms)
I do not want to hardcode the source file name & line number. I would hate to start numbering lines or write an Add-In to do this

VB Does not allow for this.  The file name problem is out of the question.  I wrote an Addin to handle the filename problem.  As far as the line numbering is concerned, you will have to number lines.  Once you number lines, you can use the undocumented variable called ERL to get the line number where the error occured.
