    Try to use goto

    vb Code:
    1. Dim i as integer
    2.  
    3. i = InputBox("Key In a Value")
    4.  
    5. if i < 5 Then
    6.     Goto GoHere
    7. else
    8.     Goto GoThere
    9. End if
    10.  
    11. gohere:
    12. Msgbox "Here"
    13. goThere:
    14. Msgbox "There"
    Where there is no hope, there can be no endeavor.

    I purposely avoided mentioning the GoTo but ...

    It has been discussed million and one times so here we go again - other than error handling the goto should not be used.
    For more detailed information search forum - there are plenty of discussions on this topic.

    Re: vb6: Exit If statement?

    The only thing you need to "break out of" is a loop. An If statement either executes or it doesn't.
    The most difficult part of developing a program is understanding the problem.
    The second most difficult part is deciding how you're going to solve the problem.
    Actually writing the program (translating your solution into some computer language) is the easiest part.

    Please indent your code and use [HIGHLIGHT="VB"] [/HIGHLIGHT] tags around it to make it easier to read.

    Re: vb6: Exit If statement?

    GoTo should only be used for On Error statements.

    To break out of a loop:

    Exit Do
    Exit While
    Exit For

    Any other evaluations like an If or Select code blocks dont need an "exit".

    Thanks for advice, i try search from forums why not recommend to use goto unless error handle.

    Because it create an ill effect called "speggetti code" where you end up jumping all over the code processing all the gotos etc. Its bad design logic and most difficult to track when debugging. I remember something about resource usage too but its been a long time since I seen a GoTo being used. Using GoTos is reminescent or the early 1980s BASIC coding
