Error number listing

Hi Experts,

I try to catch errors from Sql Server 2005 and find that error number:2627 is "Violation of unique constraint".
Where can I find all other code numbers ?
I need "Violation of unique index" code in particular.
Can I set my  own code without override system codes ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You can add custom message.  Is that what you mean?  If so check out sp_addmessage in BOL

Thanks that helps me very much.
I found 15306 error codes from 21 to 33020.
I mean when I use RAISERROR: can I send the custom error "100001" ?
So, my own errors starts from 100001 to the last int number.

Don't you do like this to catch your error instead of parsing the RAISERROR message string ?

No, I do not use custom messages.  I rely on my front-end app to handle that.

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean:
"I rely on my front-end app to handle that." (do you use a RETURN VALUE ?)

That is one option, although somewhat limited.  An output varchar parameter can return the error message.
