I have several subs that run in a chain. If the first sub meets a certain criteria then it skips to the next sub and so on. There are five subs in all.

The problem: When it finishes running the last sub, in starts backtracking to the previous sub until it gets back to the first sub. This creates a long running procedure. (does this make any sense to anyone?)

What I need it to do when it runs the last sub is to simply stop running all of the subs instead of backtracking.

Let me post the code to hopefully clear things up. Maybe you can even give me some ideas on how to clean this code up!!! (p.s. this code is only a begining, there will be more added to it as you will see by the first "if" statement) Here it is: Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
