use the structured error control and use a messagebox to display the cause:

Try 
'statement(s)
Catch ex as exception 
Messagebox.show(ex.message)
End Try

Dear friend, please share your code so far. It will be easier for us to point you to the right direction if we know how you connect to your database. Also your code will show that you've worked on this and that you need help instead of just wanting the solution.

PS: What is db_2008?
