Raising errors from classes

I am trying to raise an error in a class and trap it in the interface portion of the code.  

I created a database class.  
There is an on error goto statement in the login form.
If there is an error opening the DB (file not found for an MDB) , I raise an error and would like to process it in the login form.  However VB5 displays the error message as if there is no on error statement.

I am on NT4.0

Is the database class in a separate DLL project or the same?

If you are running in the VB IDE, make sure that the break option in Tools\options\general is set to break on unhandled errors only.

If you are using VB4 then Q129799  might also be your error.
