Hey pbsmbc,

MSDN says your up you know what creek (and you have no paddle)! If you go to:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/dcda4f64(en-us).aspx

You will see that you've reached the maximun nested blocks. My sugestion - well I've never seen a program with that many nested if's, ect - is to try to make some of your code into separate functions. Normally when somone has that many conditional statements, they have incorrectly structured their code and are not thinking modularly.

I'm willing to bet that if you look at your code, you have repeted sets of instructions. When you have that 9 out of 10 times, you can separate those blocks into a single function call.

Hope my comments will help you out and good luck,
Brandon

As bdunz19 says your design may be bad.
With nested if..else statements may you could achieve the same with a recursive function.  (Do you know what that is?)
