I am writing a code and using on error goto errorhandler
and in the errorhandler: I have a msgbox to the err.number. The strange thing is that the program doesn't have any error (or at least I couldn't find any), but still err.number is showing as 0 (zero), with no description. The code basically tries to connect to a SQL server tables through ODBC.
Any one knows about this err.number = 0?
thanks

I don't know much about connecting to SQL server, but I always thought that err.number equals zero whenever no error has occured.

One reason you may be getting into your error handler is because you may not have an Exit Sub (to exit Subs) or Exit Function (to Exit Function)

For example, the usual code I have is

Sub Example()
On Error Goto Example_Error

......bunch of code......

Exit Sub

Example_Error:
Msgbox "You have an Error!"
Exit Sub

End Sub
