Issues with IF, THEN, ELSE statement in Visual Basic

I am trying to apply a very simple IF THEN ELSE statement to my VB code to send an email  (The code runs fine without the IF THEN ELSE statement)

The IF part will be "IF value is null then end program"

The Else will be to run the code and send the email like normal but once I add the If statement it says "compile error: else without if" but there is an "IF" and an "END IF" statement in the code.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? (Also there is no IF statements in the "send email" code)
Private Sub ImpBy_AfterUpdate()
If Me.ImpBy = Null Then End
Else
'EMAIL SEND PROGRAM GOES HERE, I LEFT THIS OUT TO MAKE THIS LOOK SIMPLE.
End If
End Sub

Just for good measure:

Private Sub ImpBy_AfterUpdate()
If IsNull(Me.ImpBy)  Then
    ' do what ever
Else
'EMAIL SEND PROGRAM GOES HERE, I LEFT THIS OUT TO MAKE THIS LOOK SIMPLE.
End If

End Sub

You need to move the statement after your Then to a different line, like this.

Kind regards,

Matthias Vance

Private Sub ImpBy_AfterUpdate()
If Me.ImpBy = Null Then
End
Else
'EMAIL SEND PROGRAM GOES HERE, I LEFT THIS OUT TO MAKE THIS LOOK SIMPLE.
End If
End Sub
