Tracking any line of code that throws an error.

Is there a way in VB6 to know exactly what line of code errored when the error handling is called?

Does VB track the line it is executing in a variable or something while it is processing. Something like a variable called strCodeExecuting that whenever on error is encountered I can write the variable out and know exactrly the line of code that was trying to be executed?

I want to keep a log of all errors, clients do not always tell me what the actual error was, or all the errors for that matter.

Thanks,
Mike

Hi MGC22,

You can use the undocumented erl() function to display the line number in your error log.

NB: To use the erl function you have to number all you lines of code

I was hoping for the actual text of the line but the line number could work.
As JR2003 mentions about the line numbers, is there a way to automate putting in the line numbers in VB6?
