Is there an easy way if my VB app throws an error to just write that error to a log file and keep the program going?  The reason, is I created a custom exe file that is executed with the task scheduler to run at night, and it process a lot of records and can easily take a hours to run and if there is an error, i just want to catch it and keep it going without it halt the application
