Why can't I "Exit While"?

Fairly self-explanitory and I'm sure an easy question.  Example:

while rsTest.EOF = False
    if rsTest!id = 1 then exit while
    rsTest.movenext
wend

According to Microsoft, from the MSDN VB6 reference for the "Exit" keyword:

"While
Immediately exits the While loop in which it appears. Execution continues with the statement following the End While statement...."

So why, when I use "Exit While" does VB say "Syntax Error"?  If I can't use it (why would MS say I can?) what alternative can I use?  (I hate goto's but will use them if I have to)


Thanks!
(oh, VB6/SP5/W2000)

You can change your loop to a do..loop

do until rrTest.EOF
  if rsTest!id = 1 then exit do
   rsTest.movenext
loop

because it is an old syntax that can be replaced with :

do while rsTest.EOF = False
    if rsTest!id = 1 then exit do
    rsTest.movenext
