This is what I use:

Sub Blah()
On Error GoTo EH

‘Place procedure steps here.
'Handle Errors Gracefully
Exit Sub

MsgBox Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
Resume Exit_EH
End Sub

How about one for at the top of a module that catches
all errors  in the module's proceedures. Is there a generic  On_Error
event for worksheet code  modules and VBA modules?

Are you looking for an error  trap at project, module or procedure level??

Also be aware that possibly the most accurate is to switch on line numbers
so you ca report the error line as well?

I've "played" with project level error trapping and not gotten anywhere nice.

You can create a global variable and set it to the proc name at the top of
the procedure and then report that. This is pretty easy to do with a 3rd
party add in called MZ-Tools.
