I came across this code in a macro

On Error GoTo -1: On Error GoTo EndDoc_

I am familiar with what the On Error does but can someone tell me what the GoTo -1 statement does

Thanks

hi mutrus
normally this would mean that somewhere in the procedure is a label called "-1:" (and that the code written below this label would be executed)

Hi mutrus
It's not often I see the On Error GoTo -1 .......

On Error Goto 0 clears the error handler.
On Error Goto ?1 clears the current exception. It works pretty much like the Err.Clear statment.


I hope this is of any help ....
