Python Language Catching multiple exceptions


Example

There are a few ways to catch multiple exceptions.

The first is by creating a tuple of the exception types you wish to catch and handle in the same manner. This example will cause the code to ignore KeyError and AttributeError exceptions.

try:
    d = {}
    a = d[1]
    b = d.non_existing_field
except (KeyError, AttributeError) as e:
    print("A KeyError or an AttributeError exception has been caught.")

If you wish to handle different exceptions in different ways, you can provide a separate exception block for each type. In this example, we still catch the KeyError and AttributeError, but handle the exceptions in different manners.

try:
    d = {}
    a = d[1]
    b = d.non_existing_field
except KeyError as e:
    print("A KeyError has occurred. Exception message:", e)
except AttributeError as e:
    print("An AttributeError has occurred. Exception message:", e)
