How to stop an if statement

Hi experts,

i have these two if statements. if a the updateUser.text = "Add User" And LicenseDB.AddUser(userProfile) then step
one should run
=============================================one==========
 If btnUpdateUser.Text = "Add User" And LicenseDB.AddUser(userProfile) Then
            Me.ClearFields()
            lblmsg.Text = "The user has been added."
        Else
            lblmsg.Text = "That user details  already exists."
        End If


else two should run
==========================two============================
        If btnUpdateUser.Text = "Update User" And LicenseDB.UpdateUser(userProfile) Then
            Me.ClearFields()
            lblmsg.Text = "The user has been updated."
        Else
            lblmsg.Text = "That user details  already exists."

        End If
        Me.SetControlState(ControlState.NoSelection)

        LoadData()

the proble is that when i add a user it displays
   lblmsg.Text = "That user details  already exists."  ============from step two.

How can I stop it from running into step two

I would rewrite like this:

select case btnUpdateUser.Text
  case "Add User"
     if LicenseDB.AddUser(userProfile) Then
            Me.ClearFields()
            lblmsg.Text = "The user has been added."
          Else
             lblmsg.Text = "That user details  already exists."  
          end if
  case "Update User"
      if LicenseDB.UpdateUser(userProfile) Then
            Me.ClearFields()
            lblmsg.Text = "The user has been updated."
          Else
            lblmsg.Text = "That user details  already exists."
          end if
End Select
