Trigger Exceptions

Triggers can be used to prevent DML operations from occurring by calling the addError() method on a record or field. When used on trigger.new records in insert & update triggers and on Trigger.old records in delete triggers,the custom error message is displayed in the application interface & logged to.

Example Of Trigger Exceptions 

 Trigger AccountDeletion on Account(before delete) {
            for (Account a: [SELECT id FROM Account where id in (SELECT AccountId from opportunities) AND id in : Trigger.old]) {
                Trigger.oldMap.get(a.id).addError(‘Cannot delete account with related opportunities.’);

If a trigger even throws an unhandled exception, all records are marked with an error & no further processing takes place
