Error Messages

This chapter lists the error messages supported by Caché MultiValue.

Error Codes and Error Messages

Caché MultiValue supports error codes and corresponding error messages. Most error codes are positive integer values, but there are also a small number of alphanumeric string error codes. Error codes are usually displayed enclosed in square brackets. You can use the MVBasic ERRMSG command to display the error message for a given error code. The MVBasic ABORTE and STOPE commands also return these error messages. Square brackets are not used when specifying an error code to these functions.
