Clear Method

Clears all property settings of the Err object.


The object is always the Err object.


Use Clear to explicitly clear the Err object after an error has been handled. This is necessary, for example, when you use deferred error handling with On Error Resume Next. VBScript calls the Clear method automatically whenever any of the following statements is executed:

The following example illustrates use of the Clear method.

On Error Resume Next
Err.Raise 6  ' Raise an overflow error.
MsgBox ("Error # " & CStr(Err.Number) & " " & Err.Description)
Err.Clear    ' Clear the error.
