While...Wend Statement

See Also Example Specifics

Executes a series of statements as long as a given condition is True.




The While...Wend statement syntax has these parts:

Part Description
condition Required. Numeric expression or string expression that evaluates to True or False. If condition is Null, condition is treated as False.
statements Optional. One or more statements executed while condition is True.


If condition is True, all statements are executed until the Wend statement is encountered. Control then returns to the While statement and condition is again checked. If condition is still True, the process is repeated. If it is not True, execution resumes with the statement following the Wend statement.

While...Wend loops can be nested to any level. Each Wend matches the most recent While.

*Tip* The Do...Loop statement provides a more structured and flexible way to perform looping.
