Error handling Omatic code

Is it possible to trap errors in Omatic code by use of On Error GoTo or Try Catch Finally?  I have tried both but it doesn't seem to trap my error.  I am loading an RE record in the omatic code to get the ImportID of the constituent.  When I load with an existing System Record ID it returns the ImportId, but when I load with an invalid System Record ID, the omatic import errors out but doesn't trap my error (I am trying to have it return empty string if it can't find the record in RE).  Here is my code (i also tried with Try Catch Finally but the same thing happens.

 <ImportOM.API.VirtualColumn("GetImportID")> _

 Public Function ComputedColumn_637602077371380417( _

    ByVal oField as ImportOM.API.iField, _

    ByVal Cancel As ImportOM.API.iCancel) As String

  'This function must return a text value

  Dim sReturn As String

  Dim oRec As Blackbaud.PIA.RE7.BBREAPI.CRecord

  oRec = New Blackbaud.PIA.RE7.BBREAPI.CRecord


  On Error GoTo Errorhandler


  sReturn = oRec.Fields(Blackbaud.PIA.RE7.BBREAPI.ERECORDSFields.RECORDS_fld_IMPORT_ID)


  On Error GoTo 0


  oRec = Nothing

  Return sReturn

  Exit Function


  sReturn = ""

  'Dim sReturn As String = "Return value"

  Return sReturn

 End Function

Hi Wayne


I don't visit here often, so you may have solved this by now. I tried your code and it worked fine (I just added actual error text for clarity).




Obviously I did get an error because in this test I'd mapped the lookup to the RE importID: "Source row 1 produced Excel error row 2: No record could be found for the specified ID or alias: 'went to error handler'. "


But that occurs after the "afterdictionaries" so it's not the code. What error are you getting?
