LotusScript IF question - quick response needed

writing a simple lotusscript that prompts for a answer to 3 choices

strFormType(0) = "FTR"
strFormType(1) = "Contractor"
strFormType(2) = "Supplemental"

varReturn = ws.Prompt(PROMPT_OKCANCELLIST, "Please Select Requisition Type", "Which of open requisition are you requesting?", "", strFormType)
strFormSelect = varReturn      

So basically from here I want to check to see which one is selected and have that form to open

If (strFormSelect = " Contractor" ) Then
            Set doc = New NotesDocument(db)
            doc.Form = "CNTR Form"
    If Else (strFormSelect = "FTR" ) Then
                Set doc = New NotesDocument(db)
            doc.Form = "FTR Form"
        Else
                Set doc = New NotesDocument(db)
            doc.Form = "Supp Form"
        End Else
    End If Else
End If

But I am finding that there is no such thing as If Else.  How would I go about this?

Actually It is probably best to use a case statement.

Select Case strFormSelect
      Case "Contractor" :  
Case :

ALso Note that you have a leading space in " Contractor"
If (strFormSelect = " Contractor" ) Then

so that it will not match.
