Using Case Statements inside a Case Statement all inside an IF Statement.

Hello Everyone!

Is it possible to have sweveral case statements inside a case statement all inside an If Statement.

I have an IF Statement like this:

If Line1.text = "01"  Then

Select Case Type = "01"  Case VProv = "V" Do something

I also need to Select Case Type = "01"  Case Vprov = " "   Do something.

Can this be done all inside the If Then  

I need to have multipler case statements inside a case statement all inside the IF Statement.

Am I making any sense?

either you put several select case inside of each other:

If Line1.text = "01"  Then
  Select Case Type 
     case "01"  
        select Case VProv 
              case  "V"
                  Do something
               case " "
                  Do something
        end select ' case vprov for Type "01"
  ...
   end select ' case type
end if 

Open in new window


or you could do:

If Line1.text = "01"  Then
  Select Case Type & VProv
     case "01V"  
                  Do something
      case "01"
                  Do something
      ...
   end select  
end if 

Open in new window


hope this helps

No problem doing it. You just have to build it carefully. Sometimes, when I see that in code revision, the programmer made it a lot more complex than it needed to be.

From what I understand in your question, you could do only one Select Case and simplify its declaration:

If Line1.Text = "01" Then

   Select Case VProv

      Case "V"
         Do something

      Case " "
         Do something else

   End Select

End If

And remember than in VB, if you fall into a case, this is the only one that will be considered. All the following ones that have the right conditions will be disregarded.
