# Very Easy Help me

## Recommended Posts

First thank you for looking at my topic,

and i've been delete this over and over

```if \$Whatever = 0 then
\$whatever = 0
ElseIf \$Whatever = -1 then
\$Whatever = 25
ElseIf \$Whater = -2 then
\$whatever = 24
EndIf```

Is there any way to speed this up?

Some more simple few lines and not 50+ lines?

Thanks, LibertyMan

You did not tell what do you need, we can't look in cristal ball to finde out what the 50+ lines present

So put the script with the problem and explaind where is the problem.

Looking your 7 lines presentation the only thing that can hit my brain is

```\$Whatever = -8;put heare number for testing O_o
if \$Whatever = 0 then
\$whatever = 0
Else
\$Whatever = \$Whatever + 26
EndIf
MsgBox(0,"",\$Whatever)```

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

It depends which values you want. If you mean that the resulting value should be:

0 if input is zero

25 if input is -1

24 if input is -2

23 if input is -3

22 if input is -4

and so on, you can simply do

If \$Whatever < 0 Then \$Whatever = 26 + \$Whatever

Or is your actual problem different?

Thank you for trying to help me.

Na, I already have the numbers there

0,-1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6,...(-25)

I want to change them like so,

`If \$whatever = 0 then \$whatever = 0 ElseIf \$whatever = -1 then \$whatever = 25 endif`

Do i have to do the same all the way through

or something more simple like..

"Jchd" - I think your right but..

If \$whatever > 0 then \$Whatever = 26 + \$Whatever

Ill go test now.

It's the same that BogQ posted seconds before me.

But you changed the meaning of the test: if ___ > 0 won't work.

BTW, you can also write

If \$whatever < 0 then \$Whatever += 26

Programming isn't trial and error. It's about making it right the first time (most of the times ).
