    any or the

    Could you please let me know any exact error messages or code you receive?
    Is it okay to use "any" in this sentence. I prefer using "the".

    Re: any or the

    I find any and exact to be rather opposed. Exact implies restrictions while any does not. So my first choice would be the, which is suitable with the word exact. However, any could be used. If so, the meaning will slightly change
