I have the following Visusal Basic code and is getting an error message when running the code.  The error message is:  Compile Error:   Do Without Loop.   What am I missing?

VB Code.

Public Sub EFeed()
Range("a2").Activate

        MyScn.SendKeys "<Clear>"                            'hit clear twice
        MyScn.SendKeys "<Clear>"
        MyScn.SendKeys "scma<ENTER>"                        'type sjen
   
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
        account = ActiveCell.Value
        MyScn.PutString account, 14, 35
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
        Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)

        MyScn.PutString "3", 21, 9
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)
        ADM = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value
        MyScn.PutString ADM, 15, 49
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
                       
        If MyScn.GetString(24, 18, 12) = "SUCCESSFULLY" Then
            ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2) = "OK"
        Else: ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2) = "NOT PROCESSED"
        End If
       
        If IsEmpty(ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0)) Then Exit Do
       
        ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Activate
        account = ActiveCell.Value
        MyScn.PutString account, 23, 17
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
Loop

        Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)

Thank you for responding so quickly.    I see closing loop for both.  Which of the two do you see it missing from?  

Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)

        MyScn.PutString "3", 21, 9
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)
        ADM = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value
        MyScn.PutString ADM, 15, 49
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Where would the other Loop statement have to placed?  I tried a few options but getting a debug error.

It depends on your business logic.
From the code what I understood is , add "loop" above the second while loop

       Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       
        Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)

        MyScn.PutString "3", 21, 9
       
        MyScn.SendKeys "<ENTER>"
        Do While MyScn.OIA.XStatus <> 0                     'wait until the screen comes up
            DoEvents
        Loop
       loop                                                                  ///////////add loop here
Do While Not IsEmpty(ActiveCell)                                
        ADM = ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1).Value
        MyScn.PutString ADM, 15, 49      
        ...
       ...
loop

Thank you.
I needed to remove the Do While Not IsEmpty (ActiveCell).

Thank you!
