anguage of style

Hi All smile
I have just finished writing my first serious vbscript in about....god, 5 years.
I am stuck between:

intGReturn = 1
Call Task A
If Result from Task A is Good
Call Task B
If Result from Task B is Good
Call Task C
...and so on, we all all good
If Result for Task n is Good
intGReturn = 0

Wscript.Quit intGReturn

Call Task A (Sub/Function of Task A was a Wscript.Quit 1 given failure)
Call Task B (Sub/Function of Task B was a Wscript.Quit 1 given failure)
Call Task C (Sub/Function of Task C was a Wscript.Quit 1 given failure)
Wscript.Quit 0

I have spent 20 years moving totally towards a Task driven approach to manipulating computer systems, top down Task Sequencing...
I thought I was doing the right thing, it had dawned on me I have just moved to 'Option 2' which my early teaching led me to believe was bad form,,,from a coding perspective.

I am back in the game, but fear I need to spend most of my time in the Powershell forum as vbscript is dead?

Cheers all tek-tips members,,,still the best forum site if you ask me.

RE: anguage of style

...i think the pattern is to just avoid the nesting, also avoid the Wscript.Quits in each Function, then i dont offend delicate sensibilities
