vba 2010.

I have code that is to capture a specific error number.

It is not catching the error 424 ?

If Err.number = 424 Then
         MsgBox "You May Have Data that Contains Extra Special Characters.Please Verify Your Cut and Paste or Typing entry.", vbCritical, "Description Search Error" 'On Error Resume Next
       Set rs = Nothing
         Set db = Nothing
Exit Sub
End If

If you comment the error handling do you run into an error? If so type in the immediate window (ctrl+G to open it):
Hit enter. What is the number?

Alternatively attach a sample so we can debug it.
