How to: Break on Errors

You can specify if the debugger breaks on the next error. If the debugger is set to break on errors, then it breaks execution both on errors that are handled in code and on unhandled errors. By default, the debugger is set to break on errors.

When the debugger breaks on an error, you can inspect variables and parameters. You can also review the error message in the Debugger window, on the Home tab, in the Show group, by choosing Last Error.

For more information about how to open the Debugger window, see Activating the Debugger.
