Description:

This is an easy way to simplify error handling. Simply pass the trapped error to this function and it returns something a human can (sort of) understand. Great for simplifying account management scripts or other complex scripts where you need to trap for errors often.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

On 2009-04-14 I Added FM 10 Error Codes. (Actually, I just re-parsed the entire listing from the FM 10 help text as shown here http://www.filemaker.com/help/html/error_codes.html#1027502 )

As of now, http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10790/~/filemaker- pro-12-error-code-reference-guide is missing at least two errors:

ErrorNum = 959; "Custom Web Publishing technology disabled (CWP)";
ErrorNum = 960; "Parameter is invalid (CWP)";

These have just been added to the function.
