I have an mdb which badly need error handling added. I found mz tools but it only seems to add it to one procedure at a time.

How could I add error handling to the entire db?

For sure, you will want to take a look at this:

(read my review on the right side)

However, you pretty much will have to manually add error handling to procedures one at a time. Not aware of a tool that would go through and add EH everywhere ... that would be kind of difficult - too many variables to deal with.

looks pretty nice. So I would just set up one global handler and leave any EH I already have in place?

Well ... yes.  The GEH will tap into the existing EH automatically.  All errors effectively get routed to the GEH.

It's a sweet system with a LOT of additional functionality.
