    I take it there is no way to do error checking using the Case Else so that it doesnt repeatdly fire off the msgbox / wscript.echo commands
    Like what?

    [code]
    On Error GoTo AMGFIXERROR

    DOLOOPSTUFF...

    AMGFIXERROR:
    wscript.echo "AMG YOU BROKE IT"
    [code]

    That kind of thing? So it only fires off on an error message? Bit confused

    Select Case variable
    Case A:
    code here
    Case B:
    Code here
    Case Else:
    On Error GoTo errHandler
    End Select

    errHandler:
    msgbox err.description & err.number etc etc

    unless you can do a case on error ??

    If it's a local printer, could you not just put a script on their computer in their startup folder which sets their local printer as default? That way the network printers should get installed and then it should overwrite the default printer with the local script.

    Shouldn't need to, putting the "on error" will follow the code below it, so doing it before the case statement will still fire it off, or should do

    I couldn't get the on error thing to work, tried

    On Error GoTo errHandler

    loop code and any other code

    errHandler:

    msgbox "An error occured with description of " & err.description & " Error Number : " & err.Number

    I tried wscript.echo instead of msgbox, it showed me the error number but err.description was null / blank

    Tried the code you posted above with the same Case Else : On Error GoTo errHandler or whatever the tag was for handling errors and didn't work.

    I tried using On Error Resume Next and also did an err.Clear or err.Raise etc

    An example dummy script would be good if you get a few mins just so I can see the error handling actually working.
