At the end of your function, right before Exit Sub or Exit Function, just do:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. MsgBox "Completed successfully."
Reading a whole book on error handling, if one exists, would mostly be a waste of time. Take a look at the basics, and put the error handling code in every function you write.

Some excellent advice there. I can only suggest a visit to the Help section does no harm too.

In any VBA area type Error then press F1 (Context sensitive help).

thanks for you all.

I used to put a code when I was using Oracle Forms Builder that shows a message if the code was run successfully.

I know this will show a message to the user "Completed successfully." but in case a promblem happened the user will absolutely get two contradictory messages the error message and this one.

But now i might refer to the link below recommended by ChipR to deal with errors

Thanks all
