I have an Excel 2013 workbook that has two Report Builder requests. Request B (a Page Path report) is dependent on Request A. Request A references data entered by the user. If the user enters bad data (a non-existent URL path) then Request A returns no data and Request B fails with "Pathing patter filter cannot be empty".
I am trying to give the user a more friendly error, since I know what most likely caused the error, i.e. the aforementioned bad URL string. I have added error handling just to see what I can get, but the code is apparently ignored.
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Exit Sub ErrorHandler: MsgBox ("Error number: " & Str(Err.Number) & vbNewLine & _ "Source: " & Err.Source & vbNewLine & _ "Description: " & Err.Description) End Sub
Any ideas of how to capture and overwrite the built in error message?
