Branches unconditionally to a specified line within a procedure.



The required lineargument can be anyline label orline number. RemarksGoTo can branch only to lines within the procedure where it appears.

Note Too many GoTo statements can make code difficult to read and debug. Use structured controlstatements ( Do...Loop, For...Next, If...Then...Else, Select Case ) whenever possible.


This example uses the GoTo statement to branch to line labels within a procedure.

Sub GotoStatementDemo() 
Dim Number, MyString 
 Number = 1 ' Initialize variable. 
 ' Evaluate Number and branch to appropriate label. 
 If Number = 1 Then GoTo Line1 Else GoTo Line2 

 MyString = "Number equals 1" 
 GoTo LastLine ' Go to LastLine. 
 ' The following statement never gets executed. 
 MyString = "Number equals 2" 
 Debug.Print MyString ' Print "Number equals 1" in 
 ' the Immediate window. 
End Sub
