Good Day Experts!

I think what I want to do is possible but I am struggling how to get started and I hope you can point me in the right direction.

I have a Case statement that I would like to use a search of  arrayLists to determine which block of Case statement to run.
I have 3 different ArrayLists pre-populated.  I have a DataReader of Accounts  that I need to loop through and determine which block of code to run.  So if the Account is in ArrayList1 run this code, if Account is in ArrayList2 run this code etc...
The Account won't be in multiple ArrayLists.

Case "Account in ArrayList1 = yes"
     ....................

Case "Account in ArrayList2 = yes"
     ...................

Case "Account in ArrayList3 = yes"
     ...................


I have been searching the net for some time and am having a bit of trouble getting started.  Can you help?

Thanks,

You can use the .Contains() method to determine if a string is in an array.  Here's an example:

        Dim array1() = New String() {"yes", "no", "yes", "yes"}
        Dim array2() = New String() {"yes", "yes", "yes", "yes"}

        If array1.Contains("no") Then
            Console.WriteLine("array1")
        End If

        If array2.Contains("no") Then
            Console.WriteLine("array2")
        End If

        Console.ReadLine()

Open in new window


In this example, the console will read "array1" only.
