VBScript Errors

The errors found in VBScipt can be classified as syntax errors and run-time errors. An Err object in VBScript is used to contain information about run-time errors. The Err object is an intrinsic object with global scope. The Err object also accepts the Raise and Clear methods for generating and clearing run-time errors.

Syntax Errors

VBScript syntax errors are errors that result when the structure of one of the VBScript statements violates one or more of the grammatical rules of the VBScript scripting language. VBScript syntax errors occur during the program compilation stage, before the program has begun to be executed. Followings are a list of syntax error order by description

Run-time Errors

VBScript run-time errors are errors that result when the VBScript script attempts to perform an action that the system cannot execute. VBScript run-time errors occur while the script is being executed; when variable expressions are being evaluated, and memory is being dynamic allocated. Followings are a list of run-time error order by description

Script Host Errors

The following errors are properly speaking errors pertaining to the script host, but these errors may be seen occasionally.

ErrorHRESULTDescriptionSCRIPT_E_RECORDED0x86664004An error has been recorded to be passed between script engine and host. The host needs to pass the error code to the caller.SCRIPT_E_REPORTED0x80020101Script engine has reported an unhandled exception to the host via IActiveScriptSite::OnScriptError. Host can ignore this error.SCRIPT_E_PROPAGATE0x8002010A script error is being propagated to the caller which might be in a different thread. The host should pass the error code to the caller.
