I am trying to add the last bolded ELSE . . . to this batch code without success.

I have tested both ELSE as good but can not add them together.

How do I get FOR /F to see multiple nested IF Statements?

FOR /F "Tokens=1-3,* Delims=^*" %%A IN ('Type "%SourceFile%"') DO IF "%%A%%B"=="NM1IL" (ECHO %%D >> "%OutputFile%") ELSE (IF "%%A%%B"=="NM185" ECHO %%D >> "%OutputFile%") ELSE (IF "%%A%%B"=="REFD9" ECHO %%C >> "%OutputFile%")

Wanting to Add:
IF "%%A"=="N3" (ECHO %%B >> "%OutputFile%"
to your solution below and should I be looking at an easier way to add to the search criteria?

Putting this in a new Question to follow . . .

FOR /F "Tokens=1-3,* Delims=^*" %%A IN ('Type "%SourceFile%"') DO (
  IF "%%A%%B"=="NM1IL" (
    ECHO %%D >> "%OutputFile%"
  ) ELSE (
    IF "%%A%%B"=="NM185" (
      ECHO %%D >> "%OutputFile%"
    ) ELSE (
      IF "%%A%%B"=="REFD9" ECHO %%C >> "%OutputFile%"
    )
  )
)
