    OK So I'm in a small rut in one of my programs...... I don't know if it even can be done, but I'd like to know how to state coding in a massive dim........Such as like

    Dim BigIF as ????(<-What do I call this if it can be done/can it even be done in dim?)

    BigIF=If this0 then If this1 then If this2 then If this3 then If this4 then If this then Do this.

    In truth, It isn't neccessary(because i could just re-write the coding), it will just save me about 50 lines of coding.....

    I could not get what you are asking. Are you talking about the array of longs?

    OK what I mean is to take a formula (such as: if y>1 and x<1 and z=1 then Q.caption="1")
    and dim it as a variable....Long(as far as I understand it) Won't allow me to use coding statements such as if/then/else....and thats what i need to use.........

    Still I am not sure but whatever condition you wish you can give? if y>1 and x<1 and z=1 then Q.caption="1" is very much possible.

    Also dimming inside the ifs is also possible.

    I Was just wondering what statement you should use to dim the total statements:[ if y>1 and x<1 and z=1 then Q.caption="1"] and call it by a name such as : Bob
    OK..I'll try to explain a little better....

    I want to say somethign like
    dim water as ?? (i don't know what its called)
    water= { if y>1 and x<1 and z=1 then Q.caption="1"}
    so i can use it like this....
    If label1="32" then Water
    and it will put the statement called "water" where the word ( "water" ) is used.....

    Nope that is not possible in VB as far as I know but I am not a VB expert. What you are saying are something like macros in C++

    I am not sure what you mean by image box? Use a menu to give user the options to select something.

    Are you saying that you want to use that long IF code constantly throughout your program? If so, put it in a private sub, then just call it when you want to use that code. So...

    Code:
    'declare sub
    private sub water()
    
    'put if code here
    if y>1 and x<1 and z=1 then Q.caption="1"
    
    end sub

    Then whenever you want to use that code, just call the sub:

    Code:
    call water()
