Hi,

Try: VBIDEUtils add-ins
http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/6311/vbideutils.htm

among its features include
1) Add simple error handler to your code
2) Add enhanced error handler with call stack tracing

Hope this helps

.. And if you want to do the same but for no $$$ you could iterate thru all the forms/classes (just loop thru the files stated in the .vbp file) adding a line to all procedures/functions saving the name of the procedure/function to a textfile. When a error occurs then you look at the textfile - basically the same behaviour as the program above.

Hell, you're not supposed to do it manually ;)  Doing it automatically will be a better solution because you can also make the logging include all parameters easy. Maybe you need the parameters too to know what went wrong in a procedure/function.

I find out from the error message the gave me... it was just a cut and paste job and now i can use find replace to quickly turn all that code on or of since it all starts with
If bDebug then print #66,

.... it's not that bad... problem is is when one sub calls 3 others then goes back to the first and crashes... that is why i wanted the call stack instead.

This is what i ended up doing. It worked ok... if one sub is fired it writes it's text then it calls 4 more subs that call subs in turn... it should also be written to say where subs end ... then if you used a procuder to do the writing you could indent the written lines to see your call structure... this would be nice... maybe i'll write a program to d that and make 600$ per sale... oh well, thank you
