Hi x-perts,

Is there a way to write a Select Case statement with a FEW executable Case options, i.e. when a=true and b = true?

of course, I can write all IF statements, but it would be much easier with Select Case

Thanks
Select Case true
     Case a
     'do something
     Case b 
     'do something
End select

I'm sorry, but I don't think you can.
You can write OR statements, but not AND.
OR statements are coma sepparated.


Select Case true
     Case a,c,d
     'do something
     Case b 
     'do something
End select

I mean not INSIDE of a Case, but execute a few Case statements in a row, if conditions are satisfied, i.e. perform Case a AND Case b

is it possible somehow?

you mean:
Select Case true
     Case a OR c OR d
     'do something
     Case b 
     'do something
End select

Yes, if both the conditions are true, ex a = true and b = true, it will only execute the first, i.e. a=true condition and exit. Case b will not be checked and executed

what I need is to execute ALL individual Case statement, if the conditions are satisfied.

I see. no, that is NOT possible with the CASE statement.
CASE will run and exit on the first match.
