Hi,
I want to skip the loop below, per relevant conditions are matched
    Do While True
        ...

            If Trim(Worksheets(List0).Cells(RowID, 8).Value) <> "" And InStr(User_List, ";" & Trim(Worksheets(List0).Cells(RowID, 8).Value)) = 0 Then Continue Do
            End If

Open in new window

but I get 'Syntax Error' due to 'Continue Do'. What to adjust?

If you want to leave the Do loop then use Exit Do

No, I only want to skip one iteration, and not to leave the whole loop.

In which case just have an If statement within your Do Loop:

Do
  If Condition Then
    Code 1
  Else
    Code 2
  End If
Loop

Alternatively you could use the Select Case format within the Do Loop.

Using your syntax

Since you also have an "End If" then there should be nothing after the "Then" in the same line. It should go to the next line.
If you put no code after "Then" it will automatically continue with the do loop. You do not have to tell it to do so.
The "Else" is to handle the other condition not satisfied by the if.

    Do While True
        ...

            If Trim(Worksheets(List0).Cells(RowID, 8).Value) <> "" And InStr(User_List, ";" & Trim(Worksheets(List0).Cells(RowID, 8).Value)) = 0 Then 

            else
                    do what you want to do otherwise
            End If
