Try catch together with dbstop

7 views (last 30 days)
Hi All,
I want to use Try Catch together with dbstop. What I want to do is to email ME.message and then breakpoint on error with "dbstop if all error"
function myFunction()
xxxx (error occure here!)
catch ME
dbstop if all error
Note that after try (xxxx), there are several functions that I cannot repeat the code after "dbstop if all error".
If I put "dbstop if all error" at the begining, then cannot email "ME.message".
Any solusion to this issue?!

Instead of using dbstop at that point, use keyboard() which gives you a command prompt in debug mode.

Hi and thanks.
keyboard() would just pause the execution and not a breakpoint on error line!
keyboard() is almost the same as pause().

keyboard gives you a command prompt in a debugging session. dbstop calls keyboard() when it detects an error.
dbstop only applies to later errors, not to any error condition you are already in the catch block of.
