Hi, I have written my first runtime error handler. How do I simulate a runtime error so that I can see that my message box comes up.

cheers

Excel Facts

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.
see the help for error statement, which does exactly that (i.e. simulates an error):

On Error Resume Next ' Defer error handling.
Error 11 ' Simulate the "Division by zero" error.
