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

Exit do is used to skip loop

do while condition
if certain condition then
exit do
endif
loop

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.

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
``````
