correct use of the while statement :

WHILE condition
[...]
WEND

if you want to exit the loop if a = "" then the correct way would be

WHILE condition AND A <> ""
[...]
WEND

if you want to use the exit construction, you'd better be using

DO
[....]
if a = "" then exit do
[...]
LOOP WHILE condition

pay attention though that there is a difference in these code fragments :

x = 10
WHILE x < 5
   msgbox "this message will not be displayed"
   x = 25
WEND
DO
   msgbox "this message will be displayed"
LOOP WHILE x < 5

Open in new window
