Experts,

Based on the code below, If my varibale (isMyVariable) is true then I need to use one CFIF, if not other CFIF. Here is what I am doing and throws me the

Context validation error for the cfelse tag.  
The tag must be nested inside a CFIF tag.  

What is the best way to hanlde thing?


<cfif isMyVariable EQ "True">
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery1.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery2.Column1))>
<cfelse>            
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery3.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery4.Column1))>
</cfif>
                  My Other Code for the big CFIF
            <cfelse>
                  Rest of the code            
            </cfif>


Thanks and appreciate your quick help.

            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery1.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery2.Column1))>
           <cfelse>            
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery3.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery4.Column1))>
            </cfif>
</cfif>
                  My Other Code for the big CFIF

You've opened too many cfif's without closing them


<cfif isMyVariable EQ "True">
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery1.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery2.Column1))>
            </cfif>
<cfelse>            
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery3.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery4.Column1))>
             </cfif>
            My Other Code for the big CFIF
<cfelse>
            Rest of the code            
 </cfif>

Or rather:

<cfif isMyVariable EQ "True">
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery1.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery2.Column1))>
            </cfif>
<cfelse>            
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery3.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery4.Column1))>
             </cfif>
            My Other Code for the big CFIF
 </cfif>

      Rest of the code

rather this way:

<cfif isMyVariable EQ "True">
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery1.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery2.Column1))>
            </cfif>
<cfelseif isMyVariable EQ "False">            
            <cfif ((variables.Variable1 NEQ Myquery3.Column1) AND (variables.Variable2 NEQ Myquery4.Column1))>
             </cfif>
<cfelse>
            My Other Code for the big CFIF
 </cfif>
