Error handling statement to resume execution after a jump to an error handler

Resume Next

Resume Next is used in the traditional QB error handling mechanism within an error handler (called by On Error) to return execution to the line after the one that caused the error. Usually this is used to avoid executing the same line and causing the error again.

Resume Next resets the Err value to 0

'' Compile with -lang fblite or qb

#lang "fblite"

Dim As Single i, j

On Error Goto ErrHandler

i = 0
j = 5
j = 1 / i ' this line causes a divide-by-zero error; execution jumps to ErrHandler label

Print "ending..."

End ' end the program so that execution does not fall through to the error handler again


Resume Next ' execution jumps to 'Print "ending..."' line, but j is now in an undefined state

End If
