ODBC Error Display

I have seen many posters in the VB newsgroups that say they have received an ODBC error message such as 3146, but can't figure out why they got the message. I suspect that the vast majority of these posters did not update their error-handling procedures to use the DBEngine.Errors collection when VB4 was released. Using this collection usually gives them all the error messages they need to resolve the problem. I have created an error-handling subroutine that displays the correct error message based on whether the error is a DB error:
Public Sub ShowError()
Dim sError As String
Dim nI As Integer
Dim sTitle As String
	sError = ""
	' Determine whether or not this is a 
	' database error
	If DBEngine.Errors.Count > 0 Then
		If DBEngine.Errors(DBEngine.Errors.Count - 1)._
			Number = Err.Number Then
			sTitle = "Database Error"
			For nI = 0 To DBEngine.Errors.Count - 1
				sError = sError & DBEngine.Errors(nI) & _
			sError = sError & vbCrLf
		End If
	End If
	If sError = "" Then
		sTitle = "Error"
		' add the error string
		sError = sError & Err.description & vbCrLf
	End If
	' beep and show the error
	MsgBox sError, , sTitle
End Sub
