When is this global variable populated, is it specific to delete/insert/update statements?

I guess what i'm trying to figure out is how do I know when to use Raiserror instead of @@error?

You use RAISERROR anytime @@error <> 0.

IF @@ERROR <> 0
BEGIN
RAISERROR('AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, ITS TERRIBLE!!!!',16,1)
RETURN -1
END
