Yes, it will definitely do the trick, although I was assuming you would
be testing it in the IDE, so the ? would display the information in the
Command Window. This would allow you, if there was an error, to spend
some time examining it, making changes in the code, and go back and
forth, which you wouldn't be able to do using the msgbox() function.

Just a coding technique from many years of working with the software.
