Hi,
In sqlserver 2000  I check @@Error after each and very SQL Statement and if > 0 return -1

In Current 2005 in Catch Block  I use ERROR_MESSAGE (System function) to catch error and Raise it back to my client.

In SQL Server 2000  Cant we use ERRORMESSAGE (Detailed Description of Error like in SQLServer 2005) in a stored procedure...

so in sql server 2000 we have to create our own custom message descriptions to give a clear picture of the Error by adding to to sp_addmessage

But in SQL Server 2005 we dont need to do anything of that sort and its pretty straight forward using
inbuilt system function ERROR_Message ......Am I right?

Yep, in the catch block just use the ERROR_MESSAGE() function to retrieve the error that caused that fact that the catch block was entered. So no more @@Error catching after each SQL statement, just run some code in a try block and do the error tracking and handling in the catch block with the above mentioned function.

Also these functions can add some nice functionality:
        ERROR_NUMBER() AS ErrorNumber,
        ERROR_SEVERITY() AS ErrorSeverity,
        ERROR_STATE() AS ErrorState,
        ERROR_PROCEDURE() AS ErrorProcedure,
        ERROR_LINE() AS ErrorLine,
        ERROR_MESSAGE() AS ErrorMessage;
(also in the catch block !)

Hope this helps ...

So my final quesiton is this... IN Sql Server 2000 There is no way to catch and use RaisERROR to the client directly like u do in SQL Server 2005 ERROR_Message............. So only ErrorNumbers can be Raised in SQL Server 2000  ........So no message information being raised

I think you are correct with that assumption

Indeed, that is correct ... when you do not declare the user messages first.
