Returns or sets a descriptive string associated with an error.
object.Description [= stringexpression]

The Description property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Always the Err object.
stringexpression A string expression containing a description of the error.

The Description property consists of a short description of the error. Use this property to alert the user to an error that you can't or don't want to handle. When generating a user-defined error, assign a short description of your error to this property. If Description isn't filled in, and the value of Number corresponds to a VBScript run-time error, the descriptive string associated with the error is returned.
