On Error Goto errHandler

'Here is your code for reading the file:

Exit Sub

  Select Case err.Number
  Case 52
    Msgbox "File Not Found"
  Case 75
    Msgbox "Access Denied"
  Case Else
    Msgbox "Some other error occured"
  End Select
  Resume Next 'Allows you to resume processing at the next statement
Exit Sub

This is basic error handling process and should be implemented in every function/sub that requires it.
