    Default Very quick question... To help a dim wit !!

    Hi Thank you for reading.

    Why does :-



    Check
    IF news = $07 then Part1
    IF news = $06 then Part1
    IF news = $0A then Part1
    IF news = $0C then Part1
    Goto Check

    Not work the same as :-

    Check
    IF news = $07 or $06 or $0A or $0C then Part1
    Goto Check


    Top option 4 lines works but not the single line option....

    I know it simple....I think.. What am I missing?

    Thank You

    Andy

    Because you have wrong if-then syntax:

    Code:
    IF news = $07 or news = $06 or news = $0A or news = $0C then Part1

    Hi Andy,
    The "right" one is the one that works for YOU the person doing the programming. Many options exist. If Then is a Boolean or true false expression. You could use select case, or branch, on goto to acheive the same results.
    If you do not believe in MAGIC, Consider how currency has value simply by printing it, and is then traded for real assets.
    .
    Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants - but debt is the money of slaves
    .
    There simply is no "Happy Spam" If you do it you will disappear from this forum.

    Hi

    I was referring back to my first post…. I just missed the Syntax…! My Bad.

    Point is good and I have learned that very thing here time and time again….So much to learn so little time.

    Work gets in the way ….. But buys the chips…

    Thank you all for help !!
