Hi all,
can anyone tell me wat does ALSO stands for in EVALUATE statement
will it work like AND in IF

ex:
Evaluate A ALSO b
WHEN 9 also 8
display 'hi'
end-evaluate

is this similar to IF A = 9 AND B = 8

HI,

U ARE RIGHT,IT WORKS LIKE AND BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS IF THE FIRST CONDITION FAILS IT WON'T CHECK SECOND CONDITION
So unnessary checking of second condition is avoided,,so it minimise the time of execution
i.e.
A = 7
B = 8
Evaluate A ALSO b
WHEN 9 also 8
display 'hi'
end-evaluate

a value is not equal to 9 so it won't check b value

kvenkat_b4u,

When you use an AND condition it is must that you are checking for all the conditions to be true. So, what is the special about here about this? ALSO and AND are meant to be the same.

HTH.

hi Arrbee,


if Condition1 AND Condition2 then

even if the condition1 fails, Still it is going and checking the condition2!!!!!

if Condition ALSO Condition2 then

IF The condition1 fasil it won't check the condition2, i.e it simply ignore the codtition2!!!..What a difference

i think it's enough ,,,still u have a doubt continue the debate....
