Help, IF command

Help, IF command

Help, IF command

Hi everybody,

is it possible to compare more than three numeric and character mvar at the same time?
Example: a=1, b=2, c='yyy', d='zzz' - IF a=0 .and. b=0 .and. c=' ' .and. d=' ' (I know it doesn't work, it's just to explain myself)
If yes, how to fit them in a IF command?
-dBase III Plus-

Thank you
(excuse my bad English)
Regards smile

RE: Help, IF command

What you wrote is a valid expression.


if a=0.and.b=0.and.c=''.and.d=''

Are you getting an error?

These expressions will also work:


If a+b=0.and.c+d='' 


If a+b=0.and.LTrim(RTrim(c+d))=''
