Visual Basic Error Handling

I am looking for a web site that has some really good ideas for handling errors in VB applications.  I find it very difficult to pinpoint where errors are happening in VB code and thought that there might be a better way to handle them than just displaying the error number and description.  This isn't always helpful in large subroutines.

Rod Stephens wrote a great book that covers LOTS of stuff about error handling called "Bug Proofing Visual Basic."

His web site is www.vb-helper.com.  I just tried it myself and it appears to be down today.  But it shouldn't be for long.  It is a VERY popular site.

I am more interested in finding a web site that discusses the best method of error handling in VB.  I am not interested in buying a book, or purchasing software.  The add-ins identified from aeklund (at least the first one) is pretty cool.  My application already has this kind of error trapping.  It would just be nice to see the the exact line of code that is causing the error, instead of having to figure it out.
