Statements or labels invalid between Select Case and first Case

You can place nothing but a comment between the Select Case statement and the first Case clause. This error has the following cause and solution:

  • You placed a statement between Select Case and its first Case clause. For example:

    Select Case SomeVar 
    ' This is a comment and is valid. 
    Stop ' Even a Stop statement is invalid here. 
    Case SomeValue 
    . . . 
    End Select 
    
The  **Select Case** statement must be immediately followed by its first **Case** statement. If the intervening[expression](vbe-glossary.md) is a comment, precede it with a comment delimiter ( **'** ). Otherwise, place the expression where it belongs or delete it.

For additional information, select the item in question and press F1 (in Windows) or HELP (on the Macintosh).
