Microsoft Access Error Number and Error Description Reference
by Luke Chung, President of FMS, Inc.
Introduction to Error Codes
When an error occurs in your Microsoft Access application, Access provides an error number and description. If you have error handling in place, the error object (Err) lets you
get the error number (Err.Number) and description (Err.Description). For instance, Error 11 is for "Division by zero".
If you are building applications for international use, you should only rely on the error number because the error description is localized to the language of the Access installation.
