asp.net 2.0, In my catch statement I have
                    Catch ex As Exception
                        Throw (ex.InnerException)
                        Response.Write("An Error Occurred: " & e.ToString())
                    End Try

but when the error is thrown I get ..
An Error Occurred: System.EventArgsAn

Is there a way to get a more meaningful message?

You are trying to get the error message from a variable that contains the event arguments.

Change e to ex.

Try this line
   Response.Write("An Error Occured: " & ex.message)

This will display the actual error message that has been generated.
