     error errornumber

         Call procedures as you would in code.

         View debugging output while the program is running.


Note   Debug window statements are executed in a contextthat is, as if they are entered in a specific form or module.  This context appears in the title bar of the Debug window.

If you need help on syntax for functions, statements, properties, events, or methods while working in the Debug window, select the keyword or the property, event, or method name, and press F1.

While in the Debug window, you can do most of the things you do in the Code windowJ73QNY, but statements in the Debug window are not saved with the project.  If you want to save such code, copy or cut it and then paste it into the Code window.
