Unfortunately that page is no longer being updated.


I originally compiled this list of Access VBA error codes whilst creating an error logging system for one of my own applications.


It is also very useful as a reference source for trouble shooting other databases e.g. when responding to posts at various online Access forums


A report is also available but its about 90 pages long so think before you print it!


Clicking the Search the Internet button runs a Google search for the selected error



1. The list does NOT include various JET errors which can also arise occasionally

    JET errors include numbers such as -2147467259, -2147221233, -2147352567
