Return without GoSub (Error 3)

See Also    Specifics

A Return statement must have a corresponding GoSub statement. This error has the following cause and solution:

  • You have a Return statement that can't be matched with a GoSub statement.

    Make sure your GoSub statement wasn't inadvertently deleted.

Unlike For...Next, While...Wend, and Sub...End Sub, which are matched at compile time, GoSub and Return are matched at run time.
