I'm new to Delphi (Using Delphi 1) and I am experimenting with the BDE engine on an Interbase Local Server. My question is how do I use the EDBENGINEERROR exception handler properly so as catch the reason for any errors to be displayed in a dialog box. The on-line help is not very clear about this.

begin
  ///some code or maybe not
  try
    ///some more code
  except on EDBENGINEERROR
    ShowMessage('Ops DB Error');
  end;
end;

I think Ktoshni want error's reason, not common phrase 'Ops DB Error'

Ok, here is a snippet from the help file,,,,
------------
The E parameter is usually of type EDBEngineError. From this exception type, you can extract an error message that you can display to users in your error handler. For example, the following code could be used to display the error message in the caption of a dialog box:

ErrorLabel.Caption := E.Message;

This parameter is also useful for determining the actual cause of the update error. You can extract specific error codes from EDBEngineError, and take appropriate action based on it. For example, the following code checks to see if the update error is related to a key violation, and if it is, it sets the UpdateAction parameter to uaSkip:

{ Add 'Bde' to your uses clause for this example}
if E is EDBEngineError then
 with EDBEngineError(E) do
 begin
   if Errors[ErrorCount - 1].ErrorCode = DBIERR_KEYVIOL then
     UpdateAction := uaSkip  { Key violation, just skip this record }
   else
     UpdateAction := uaAbort { Don't know what's wrong, abort the update }
 end;
