Detecting Errors while using ADO

I have checked many ASP books, including the "Programming Active Server Pages" from MS.  They all talk about how to use the ADODB Connection object and the recordset object to get or update data.  None of these books talk about how to detect any errors.  For example, I am inserting multiple records into an Access table.  Since the records have the same values, I should get some sort of errors from somewhere and remind the user to change the data.  How could I get that error?

at any point before executing the command, you can do the following:

-- I suggest you put your routine in a sub / function to isolate the problem locally.

Sub getRecords

   Dim rs

   On Error Resume Next   'trap for error

   Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

   rs.Open "getRecords",strConnection,adOpenForwardOnly,adLockReadOnly,adCmdStoredProc

   'if for some reason, the previous command fails, do this...

   If Err.Number > 0 Then
     Response.Write "Error getting record"
     Err.Clear
   End If


   On Error Goto 0  'disable error trap

End Sub
