There is no variable or property that contains the name of the sub that is currently running.  You'll have to type it in manually in every sub.

The best you have is
Err.number      -   error code number
Err.description   -  description of error as it appears in the error window in vb
Err.source     - usually the name of the project, but if you raise your own errors using Err.raise() you can specify what the value is
