Visual basic simple error checking question On error

How do I reset the on error statement?  Example:

on error goto ErrOccured
msgbox "hello world"

'starting here I don't want errors to goto ErrOccured and I may not have any further error checking in place so undesired effects could occur if things went to ErrOccured

BTW is there a way to goto an error trap and then back to your code without goto statements?

what would be a good way to error check this for example:

Open OptionsFrm.LoggingPath.Text For Append As #2
       Print #2, "Test"
Close #2

To disable error handling:

on error goto 0


For the example:

on error goto oops
Open OptionsFrm.LoggingPath.Text For Append As #2
on error goto 0
Print #2, "Test"
Close #2

Try This...

Private sub ErrorExample()
On Error Goto ErrHand
    msgbox "hello world"
On Error Resume Next 'Program execution will continue ignoring all errors... use sparingly or line by line
   msgbox "hello world"
   If Err.Number > 0 Then
       'An Error Occured
   End If
On Error Goto 0  'Disables Error Handling as stated by cookre... but your program execution will stop
   MsgBox "hello world"
Exit sub
ErrHand:
   Msgbox Err.Number & " " & err.Description
   Resume Next 'Causes the next line after the error to be executed
   Resume        'Causes the line that caused the error to be re-executed.
End Sub

Use:

   on error goto ErrOccured

to jump to ErrOccured when there is an error.

Use:

   on error Resume Next

to jump to the next line of code without going to ErrOccured.

This is the most simple way.
