MS SQL Stored Procedure Insert Update Ouput to ASP.NET?

I have a sp which Inserts or Updates depending on the VIN number.

Note: I receive 'red squiggly' syntax error on the ELSE

[SP]
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_Inventory_TEST]
(			
        @Vin			nvarchar(20),
       @StockNumber	nvarchar(100),
	@Status			nvarchar OUTPUT,
        @VinOut                 nvarchar OUTPUT
)
AS
BEGIN		
	SET NOCOUNT ON;

		IF EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM [Inventory_TEST] WHERE Vin = @Vin)
		
		UPDATE [Inventory_TEST] 
                SET 
		Vin = @Vin,
		StockNumber = @StockNumber		
                WHERE (Vin = @Vin);

                 SELECT @VinOut = [Vin] From [Inventory_TEST] Where Vin=@Vin;
                 SELECT @Status = 'UPDATE'

               ELSE <-- red squiggly error

                   INSERT INTO [Inventory_TEST] (Vin, StockNumber)
		   VALUES ( @Vin, @StockNumber );

                   SELECT @VinOut = [Vin] From [Inventory_TEST] Where Vin=@Vin;
                   SELECT @Status = 'INSERT'

END

:) see if the "red squiggly" goes away with a couple of begin/end's:
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[sp_Inventory_TEST]
(            
        @Vin            nvarchar(20),
        @StockNumber    nvarchar(100),
        @Status         nvarchar OUTPUT,
        @VinOut         nvarchar OUTPUT
)
AS
BEGIN        
    SET NOCOUNT ON;

        IF  EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM [Inventory_TEST] WHERE Vin = @Vin)
        
            BEGIN
                    UPDATE [Inventory_TEST] 
                    SET 
                        Vin = @Vin,
                        StockNumber = @StockNumber        
                    WHERE (Vin = @Vin);

                    SELECT @VinOut = [Vin] From [Inventory_TEST] Where Vin=@Vin;
                    SELECT @Status = 'UPDATE'
            END

         ELSE -- red squiggly error

            BEGIN
                   INSERT INTO [Inventory_TEST] (Vin, StockNumber)
                   VALUES ( @Vin, @StockNumber );

                   SELECT @VinOut = [Vin] From [Inventory_TEST] Where Vin=@Vin;
                   SELECT @Status = 'INSERT'
            END
