Thanks, Pete. In terms of adding value I am assuming that an exception raised by a method that you didn't call is harder to trace / debug, whereas if you have the full history then it should start with the method you called and you can then trace back to where that call went and probably have a better idea of where it went wrong - i.e. there's no apparent direct benefit of what I am doing in this (and most) cases other than tracing exceptions.

in your sample though, you catch and throw the general purpose exception for no reason
That's something I saw in one of the CP articles (I think I interpreted it from this one[^]). I had read into it that what I am doing is saying that if anything I wasn't expecting happens, just re-throw the same thing to ensure you don't lose it, i.e. it's a side effect of a Try block. Maybe I assumed that without it I would in effect be 'swallowing' all other exceptions, but maybe that only happens if I catch the general purpose one and then leave the catch block empty?
 
Does your comment mean that it is redundant - i.e. is that what would have happended anyway, even without that last catch statement?
 
Thanks,
Mike
