No comments, GREAT function.
One question, please:
How to get the value of ErrorNum when Error Capture is ON and Get(LastError) = 1?

Thanks in advance.

spiskare@courts.state.ny.us or spiskarev@hotmail.com.

I added seven more codes to the end of the list - not sure this is the complete list though..

Don't forget to add a semicolon after 1413, or it won't work.
Enjoy..

ErrorNum = 1450 ; "Action requires PHP privilege extension (*)" ;
ErrorNum = 1451 ; "Action requires that current file be remote" ;
ErrorNum = 1501 ; "SMTP authentication failed" ;
ErrorNum = 1502 ; "Connection refused by SMTP server" ;
ErrorNum = 1503 ; "Error with SSL" ;
ErrorNum = 1504 ; "SMTP server requires the connection to be encrypted" ;
ErrorNum = 1505 ; "Specified authentication is not supported by SMTP server" ;
ErrorNum = 1506 ; "Email(s) could not be sent successfully" ;
ErrorNum = 1507 ; "Unable to log in to the SMTP server" ;

I've updated the list for Filemaker 12:

Part One:

ErrorNum = 1550; "The file isn't a plugin, or can't load for some reason";
ErrorNum = 1551; "Can't delete existing plugin, can't write to the folder, can't put on disk for some reason";
ErrorNum = 1626; "The protocol is not supported";
ErrorNum = 1627; "The authentication Failed.";
ErrorNum = 1628; "There was an error with SSL.";
ErrorNum = 1629; "The connection timed out";
ErrorNum = 1630; "The url format is incorrect";
ErrorNum = 1631; "The connection failed";
ErrorNum = 2021; "plug-ins configuration disallowed";
ErrorNum = 2046; "This command or action cannot be performed because that functionality is no longer supported";
ErrorNum = 2047; "Bento 2 (or later) is not presented on the system";
ErrorNum = 2048; "The selected work book is not excel 2007/2008 format";
ErrorNum = 2056; "This script step cannot be performed because this window is in a modal state.";
ErrorNum = 3000; "Action never occurred because script was triggered";
ErrorNum = 3001; "Set when a step returns but is not really finished (probably due to having to switch threads and keep engine thread running)";
ErrorNum = 3002; "The external file can not be deleted from disk. Do you want to delete the reference to the file anyway?";
ErrorNum = 3003; "Can not write file to the external storage.";
ErrorNum = 3004; "Directory Cant Edit";
ErrorNum = 3005; "Directory Cant Delete";
