I am writing data to a table.  Intermittently I will get a format error.  I can click ok and the job will continue.  The error does not give me any detail other than format error.  Is their any way I can trap for these kinds of error messages to give me more detail of what the problem is????

Thanks
Kenny

Put it into try catch block and read the error message (err.Description)

Is the err.Description a specific function of vb.net where it give more detail.  The way I currently handle the error is as follows:


Try
....
.,..
....

Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(ex.ToString())

EndTry

Or does this code do the same thing?

Thanks
Kenny
