error numbers

Does anyone know if microsoft has a way to look up errors and their 
resolution by ERROR NUMBER?

I have never found anything like that.  Now they have something called 
"Events and Errors Message Center" but even that doesn't appear to let one 
look up errors by error number!

do you talk about the Knowledge Base?

If yes, this might be interesting for you - postet a few days ago in the 
German Access newsgroup:

This site gives you a lot of keywords to get exacter search results. In 
your case the keyword kberrmsg sounds interesting.

You could google these groups for sources of  lists of error codes.
There are probably ways you can step through code raising each error
and printing the error and its description to a log file.

As to problem resolution by error code that's a hopeless dream because
the error number and its description that you see may have nothing to
do with the thing in your code that actually caused the Error event.

There is absolutely no compiler that will flawlessly detect the errors
in your code.  Most of them are pretty good and they're generally
getting better.  However when they fail, the reported errors can be
meaningless and misleading.  In time you develop a list of things to
try to make the error go away.

Run time code can be even wilder.  Source code that compiles
flawlessly will often fail repeatably.  That's why software
manufacturers have QA departments.  The best software QA department I
ever saw, bar none, was at DEC circa 1980 on their DECMate
wordprocessor software.  The differentiator was that the initial level
of testing during product development was populated by novice users
with minimal computer expertise and training.  They were given
wordprocessing tasks to do.  They would do the most ridiculous things
that often caused errors.  They would first report the error to their
supervisor.  If it wasn't related to the product they were thanked,
told how to avoid that error in the future and sent back to their
task.  Often they would flush errors out of code that the individual
developer (once it was isolated to the offending module) had delivered
as bullet proof.  The QA folks had to then go talk to the relevant
developer.  They were always surprised when the developer started the
interview with "That's great, you can't believe what a contribution
you're making".  Unfortunately for us, there was a high turnover in
that group.  Once they got proficient at using the software they no
longer flushed out the wild errors.

If you could flawlessly tell developers the exact things that they
must do to prevent *each and every* error then Bill Gates or Steve
Ballmer will have a private jet and a limousine on its way to you with
an offer that would eclipse the contracts of NBA and NFL stars.

sequence numbers #2
how i can put sequence number after applying filter. if anyone can help me on this matter, i'll be very thankful. If your list begins in cell A1.... Insert a column and put SEQ in the "new" cell A1. Then put this formula in Cell A2 and copy down: =SUBTOTAL(3,B$2:B2) Now filter your list. That formula will count the number of non-blank, visible cells. Note the dollar sign in the formula. Cell A3 will count the non-blank, visible cells from A2:A3. Cell A5 will count them from A2:A5, etc. Does that help? -- Regards, Ron "Ashley" wrote: > how i can put se...

Blue Sreen Error
I get a blue screen error (also known as the blue screen of death or BSOD) in Windows XP Pro that is caused by PowerPoint 2007. I should say “primarily” caused by PowerPoint as some other things will occasionally trigger it as well. It usually happens when I am scrolling through a number of PowerPoint slides. Other rare causes are also graphics intensive such as Google Earth or a web cam. My guess is that it is not a PowerPoint problem in itself but in a driver or device issue (video card for example). But before I start detailed troubleshooting I thought I would ask if anybo...

Record auto numbering
I suppose I shouldn't be concerned, but my record autonumbering jumped from 135 to 432,233 when I was trying to copy and paste common info. Any way to reset? Access Rookie If the numbers don't have "meaning" nor need to be sequential, no problem. Actually if they needed to be sequential or have meaing, there would be a problem as autonumbers often aren't as you just found out. Still that is quite a jump. Copying and pasting can be a problem. It's better to import instead. You could empty the table, like exporting to Excel, then do a compact and ...
