object.Description [= stringexpression]
Always the Err object.
A string expression containing a description of the error.
The Description property consists of a short description of the error. Use this property to alert the user to an error that you can't or don't want to handle. When generating a user-defined error, assign a short description of your error to this property. If Description isn't filled in, and the value of Number corresponds to a VBScript run-time error, the descriptive string associated with the error is returned.
On Error Resume Next Err.Raise 6 ' Raise an overflow error. MsgBox ("Error # " & CStr(Err.Number) & " " & Err.Description) Err.Clear ' Clear the error.
