ADO Error Object

Error Object

The ADO Error object contains details about data access errors that have been generated during a single operation. 

ADO generates one Error object for each error. Each Error object contains details of the specific error, and are stored in the Errors collection. To access the errors, you must refer to a specific connection.

To loop through the Errors collection:

for each objErr in objConn.Errors
  response.write("Description: ")
  response.write(objErr.Description & "<br>")
  response.write("Help context: ")
  response.write(objErr.HelpContext & "<br>")
  response.write("Help file: ")
  response.write(objErr.HelpFile & "<br>")
  response.write("Native error: ")
  response.write(objErr.NativeError & "<br>")
  response.write("Error number: ")
  response.write(objErr.Number & "<br>")
  response.write("Error source: ")
  response.write(objErr.Source & "<br>")
  response.write("SQL state: ")
  response.write(objErr.SQLState & "<br>")
