VBA Runtime Error Codes

I was teaching a VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) class for Excel today, and the question came up, "is there a list of all of the runtime error code numbers and what they mean?" You might be able to find one, but the easiest thing to do is to generate the list. Here is a small piece of VBA code that shows all of the runtime error code numbers and their descriptions.

Public Sub DisplayErrors()
    Dim i As Long
    
    For i = 1 To 65535
        If Error(i) <> "Application-defined or object-defined error" Then
            Debug.Print i & " " & Error(i)
        End If
    Next i
End Sub

When you run the code, it will print the list to the Immediate Window in the VBA Editor. Press Ctrl+G to make the Window visible.

It is possible to get other runtime errors, but only from some component that is called by VBA, not from VBA itself. When I run the code, this is the list that I get:
