ELSEIF


Basic form

ELSEIF logexp.

Effect

Within a processing block enclosed by " IF ... ENDIF ", this statement indicates the processing to be executed if the logical expressions specified by IF and the preceding ELSEIF s are false, but the logical expression in this ELSEIF processing block is true.
Between the IF and ENDIF statements, there may be any number of ELSEIF s. These may be followed, optionally, by an ELSE statement, but this is executed only if none of the logical expressions under IF or ELSEIF is true.

Example

DATA RESULT TYPE I. ... IF RESULT < 0. WRITE / 'Result less than zero'. ELSEIF RESULT = 0. WRITE / 'Result equal zero'. ELSE. WRITE / 'Result greater than zero'. ENDIF.

Depending on the value of RESULT , the three different texts are output.
