Discussion: The CONTINUE statement passes control to the NEXT statement in a FOR/NEXT structure or to the LOOP statement in a DO/LOOP structure.
A CONTINUE statement must occur within a FOR/NEXT structure or a DO/LOOP structure.
If a CONTINUE statement occurs within an IF/THEN or IF/THEN/ELSE structure, the IF structure must itself be within a FOR/NEXT loop or DO/LOOP structure, and the CONTINUE statement refers to the FOR or DO structure, accordingly.
There can be multiple CONTINUE statements within a given FOR/NEXT or DO/LOOP structure.
DO WHILE A LT 100 ! Start the loop . IF A=B ! If A = B, then CONTINUE ! jump to the LOOP statement ELSE ! otherwise . ! execute these statements . ENDIF ! End the IF structure . LOOP ! End the DO structure
