Hi,
    I would like to display a custom error message.I used the following subroutine.But still the MS-Access's default Error message overrides my custom message.In other words,this routine form_error is not at all invoked.I used an ErrObject variable also.But still MS-Access's default error message keeps popping.

Private Sub Form_Error(DataErr As Integer, Response As Integer)
    msgbox DataErr
    'Select Case DataErr
    '     Case xxxx
    '          MsgBox "My Error Message for XXXX"
    '          Response = acDataErrContinue
    '     Case Else
    '          Response = acDataErrDisplay
    'End Select
End Sub

      I would like to know how to trap the error number.After trapping which error function shud i use to display my custom error message????Suggstions please

Thanks
Shan

Hi Shan,
Here's a sample of an error trap getting the  error number (err.Number):


Error Handler:
Err_skAnalyzeSQL:
    MsgBox "An error occurred in the function: skAnalyzeSQL." & vbNewLine & _
        "Err # - msg: " & Err.Number & " - " & Err.Description, vbCritical, _
        "Function Error"
    Resume Exit_skAnalyzeSQL


Here's how I raise an error of my own:

If Len(Nz(skFieldNameSetIn)) = 0 Then
    ' If no data, complain!
    Err.Raise 1000, "skCreateTable", _
    "No Field name(s) supplied in call to skCreateTable"
End If

Kind regards,
Sven

Shan the form_error code is only invoked when the form that holds this procedure has the focus. Furthermore you have to set the response to acDataErrContinue. So you case statement should work, but since you commented it out you need to add the acDataErrContinue back in:

Private Sub Form_Error(DataErr As Integer, Response As Integer)
    msgbox DataErr
    Response = acDataErrContinue        '<-- Added
    'Select Case DataErr
    '     Case xxxx
    '          MsgBox "My Error Message for XXXX"
    '          Response = acDataErrContinue
    '     Case Else
    '          Response = acDataErrDisplay
    'End Select
End Sub
