Exit statement

Exits a block of Do…Loop, For…Next, Function, Sub, or Property code.

Syntax

Exit Do
Exit For
Exit Function
Exit Property
Exit Sub


The Exit statement syntax has these forms:

Statement Description
Exit Do Provides a way to exit a Do...Loop statement. It can be used only inside a Do...Loop statement. Exit Do transfers control to the statement following the Loop statement. When used within nested Do...Loop statements, Exit Do transfers control to the loop that is one nested level above the loop where Exit Do occurs.
Exit For Provides a way to exit a For loop. It can be used only in a For...Next or For Each...Next loop. Exit For transfers control to the statement following the Next statement. When used within nested For loops, Exit For transfers control to the loop that is one nested level above the loop where Exit For occurs.
Exit Function Immediately exits the Function procedure in which it appears. Execution continues with the statement following the statement that called the Function.
Exit Property Immediately exits the Property procedure in which it appears. Execution continues with the statement following the statement that called the Property procedure.
Exit Sub Immediately exits the Sub procedure in which it appears. Execution continues with the statement following the statement that called the Sub procedure.

Remarks

Do not confuse Exit statements with End statements. Exit does not define the end of a structure.

Example

This example uses the Exit statement to exit a For...Next loop, a Do...Loop, and a Sub procedure.

Sub ExitStatementDemo() 
Dim I, MyNum 
 Do ' Set up infinite loop. 
 For I = 1 To 1000 ' Loop 1000 times. 
 MyNum = Int(Rnd * 1000) ' Generate random numbers. 
 Select Case MyNum ' Evaluate random number. 
 Case 7: Exit For ' If 7, exit For...Next. 
 Case 29: Exit Do ' If 29, exit Do...Loop. 
 Case 54: Exit Sub ' If 54, exit Sub procedure. 
 End Select 
 Next I 
 Loop 
End Sub
