How to notify user when path is not accessable due to connection lost

I want to develop a simple databse application using VB6 and one of the function is to access a network path. How to notify user if the application not able to access the path due to connection lost or network breakdown? Pop up a msg instead of application error due to cannot access path?

Yup, perhaps you need a better error handling here, like:

Sub YourProcess()
    on error goto ErrorHandler

    'your stuff here...

    Exit Sub
ErrorHandler:
    Msgbox "Connection Lost, blabla.."

'   Msgbox err.number & ":" & err.description

End Sub

The best way is to, at least, report a visual indication to the user when the path does not exist.

If Dir("\\server\somepath\", vbDirectory) = "" Then
   MsgBox "The specified path doesn't exist or is currently inaccessible!", vbCritical
End If
