Error Codes

P: n/a
Would anyone be able to direct me to an online resource that can provide
additional information based upon Error Codes? This question was posed to
me and I cannot locate a substantial resource. The person that brought this
to my attn is trying to locate information based on the code itself and, as
usual, has received nothing but cryptic info that is not answering his
question.

Thanks,

RS

An Access error code? Open the debug window (Ctrl-G) and type

?AccessError(3203)

(or whatever the error is)

You'll get a skeleton of the description associated with the error. (For the
error code above, you'll get "Subqueries cannot be used in the expression
(|).") (|) in what you get back indicates that a specific word or phrase
will be inserted. From that, try doing a lookup at
http://search.microsoft.com/search/s...t=a&View=en-us putting some
(or all) of the error message into the "This exact phrase" box.

Or are you looking for something more generic?
