How do I set else for both and

I have a situation where I am iterating a xml-string, with several id-nodes.
If one of the id-nodes equals a predefined number, the movie should show solution A, but if the predefined number does not exist as an id-node, it should show solution B.

The problem is that if I iterate the xml, both scenarios exist, if I compare IDs.
It equals an ID and it does not equals an ID.
Take a look:
var bookLength=myXML.Book;
for (var i:int; i < bookLength.length(); i++ ) {
if (myXML.Book[i].id==0684826976){
title_TF.x=30;
}
else{
title_TF.x=50;
}
}

Open in new window

The problem is that title_TF will show in both positions since both situations are correct.
But obviously I only want one of the solutions to show.
