    Can you put a loop inside an IF statement?

    HIIIIIIII!!!

    I need to run through a chunk of code TWICE if a combo box text is LIKE <whatever>. If the combo box ISN'T LIKE <whatever>, I just need it to run once. Can you do this?

    Code:
    
    If cboNonHourlyDuties.Text Like "*CarSeal*" Then
        csString = "CAR SEALS INSPECTED"
        For indx = 0 To 1
    End If
    
    <Chunk of code>
    
    If cboNonHourlyDuties.Text Like "*CarSeal*" Then
        csString = "CAR SEALS REHUNG"
        Next indx
    End If

    Not sure if I understand your code but you can use a variable in the For statement in order to specify the number of times it should iterate:

    For indx = 0 to NumIterations - 1

    Next indx
