Getting Procedure Location Name

Question:
Can I get the name of the procedure that an error has occurred in?For example, I would like to send my error to a form that containsthe error number, the description, form name and the procedure name(like load_form, Next_rec, etc….) I am currently using err.description,err, and err.source for the project name. Now I need the procedure namethat the error occurred in.

Answer:
At the last VBITS, the guys from Microsoft said that they were planning to put this functionality into the next version. In the meantime, I would create a global variable that is set within each procedure to the procedure name. This way, when an error pops, you have the information you supplied to yourself. Since you’re using a local error handler already, you can just pass the procedure name. However, the short answer is that no, you can’t get the procedure name.
