Hi, How do I create an if/else statement in which I want it to do the same thing if either of 2 variables are entered? Here is my code:

String mode = request.getParameter("mode");

      if (mode.equals("largeimages"))
            String imagenumber = request.getParameter("imagenumber");
            out.print("<a href=\"deleteimages.jsp?mode=" + mode + "&imagenumber=" + imagenumber + "\">");
      } else if (mode.equals("listaccession") OR mode.equals("listaccessionall"))
            String last2 = request.getParameter("last2");
            out.print("<a href=\"deleteimages.jsp?mode=" + mode + "&last2=" + last2 + "\">");
      } else
            out.print("<a href=\"deleteimages.jsp?mode=" + mode + "&series=" + series + "\">");
out.print("<font size=2>Unselect Image</font>");

Thank you for your help in advance.
