"Select Case" Statements

This section describes how 'Select Case' statements work. If one of the expected value in a case clause equals to the test value, the statement block in that case clause will be executed.

"Select Case" statement is an alternative way of executing statements selectively based on certain conditions. Here is the syntax of "Select Case" statements:

   Select Case test_value
      Case expected_value_list_1
         statement_block_1
      Case expected_value_list_2
         statement_block_2
      ...
         ...
      Case Else
         statement_block_n
   End Select

where "test_value" is a value used to test against with expected values specified in the "Case" clauses, and "expected_value_list_*" are lists of expected values.

The execution of "Select Case" statement goes like this:
