MS Access - Trying to intercept SQL Server unique index error with error-trapping

I dropped a unique index on an INT column in a SQL Server 2008 table.  The index does its job, but it would be nice to present the Access 2007 front-end user with an error message that's a little friendlier than the following:

"Cannot insert duplicate key row in object 'dbo.blabla..' with unique index 'Idx_blablabl'. The statement has been terminated at..."

I could put a little code under the hood in Access under the corresponding field's Before_Update event to check for unique values, but I'd like to simply error trap the error thrown by SQL Server.  Suggestions?
