If while inside a try ... catch, a second try...catch is run, is there a way to communicate to the original try...catch that an error occured while inside the other try...catch?

EXAMPLE:
a try...catch is running that opens up a report.  The report has an error attempting to get data from SQL.  The try...catch inside the report correctly exits the report without issue and control moves back to the original try...catch.  The original try...catch has no idea the try...catch in the report caught an error.

You could set a flag of some sort, and handle that in code.  Otherwise, as far as the outer Try...Catch is concerned, the no error took place (because it was caught).

You can throw an exception and the outer catch will catch it.

You can throw the exception when it is caught in the inner try block and it will then be bubbled up to the outer try block with all info intact.

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Try
            Try
                'Exception happens here
                Throw New Exception("Hello world")
            Catch ex As Exception
                Throw  'Just throw... 
            End Try

        Catch ex As Exception

            ''handle when caught here
            MsgBox(ex.Message)

        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

Throw the exception using the throw keyword and the outer try..catch will trap it.
Try 
----
    Try
      ----
    Catch ex as exception
        throw
    End Try
Catch ex as exception
  ----
End Try
