Need to make sure I'm thinking this through.

If a criteria is true, then I need to perform another test, otherwise perform the default test.
Thus, I need to drop out of an if statement, but continue my foreach....is break the statement I need for this?

foreach ($cog in $widgests) {
if ($something -eq $true) {
  if ($something else -eq $true) {
    #do something
  } else {
    #This is bad - don't even try the additional tests
    break; #??
  }
} else {
  if ($test -eq $true) {write-host 'All is right with the world'} else {write-host 'Who moved my cheese?'}
}
}

Hi

Change line 7 to Continue
This will just skip the loop itteration

break will end the foreach loop

I hope this helps
