ASSIGMENT error in IF condition

ASSIGMENT error in IF condition

(OP)
IF TYPEUN = "FGPVC 1" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 2" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 3" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 4" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 5" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 2L" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 3L" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 3LB" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 3A" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 4A" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 5A" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 10" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 10B" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 10C" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 20B"

This is my IF condition.

When I try to build I get an ASSIGMENT error on this line.

There is something wrong in my syntax ?

Thank you for your help.

RE: ASSIGMENT error in IF condition

Salut, jfdumais

It looks like the resulting statement is just too long.
I got it to work by splitting up the statement using semicolons:

IF TYPEUN = "FGPVC 1" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 2" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 3" .OR.;
 TYPEUN = "FGPVC 4" .OR. TYPEUN = "FGPVC 5" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 2L" .OR.;
 TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 3L" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 3LB" .OR.;
 TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 3A" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 4A" .OR. TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 5A" .OR.;
 TYPEDEUX = "FGPVC 10" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 10B" .OR.;
 TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 10C" .OR. TYPETROIS = "FGPVC 20B"
? 'Oui'
else
? 'Non'
endif

However, I have to say I would do something like:

if typeun$"FGPVC 1  \FGPVC 2  \...\FGPVC 5  " ;
   .or. typedeux$"FGPVC 2L \...\FGPVC 10 ";
   .or. typetrois$" ... etc

for improved readability and to shorten the line. However the strings you are testing for would each have to be padded out to len(typex), which I have assumed to be 9 bytes.

I *think* you are limited to about 16 conditions (it's a bit like recursion).
