Over riding ALL errors

Over riding ALL errors

Over riding ALL errors

Hello all.

I have a database project that uses ADODC's. This program will run on a lot of different computers and therefore the path of the database is not constant. I can overwrite this once the program loads by finding the right pass and chanding the conection string property of the ADODC.

HOWEVER while the program is loading i get an error for each ADODC that the database doesn't exist (i.e instead of C drive it might be D drive for example. As i said above i can correct the path but I want to bypass these error messages so the user doesn't have to press enter 20 times before they can use the program.

Thanks for your help...


RE: Over riding ALL errors

Have you tried putting Error Handling in the code, and ignoring those errors which you want to skip?

RE: Over riding ALL errors

YES.  I have attempted to bypass the errors with "ON ERROR GOTO" but the errors seem to be originating before my program actually starts running, therefore no matter how early i put in the error handling the errors still come up.

RE: Over riding ALL errors

Check on the program error options.   From the IDE, it's Tools->Options->General Tab.  There is a section on error handling, I would set it to "Break on unhandled Errors".

RE: Over riding ALL errors

You should remove all links from Data controls to the database (and only load them once the program is loaded.
