Description 

Else must follow an If script step or Else If script step. Else cannot follow another Else script step.

When all If script steps and Else If script steps evaluate to false, script execution moves to the Else script step. The script steps under Else are executed, and script execution moves to the End If script step.

Example 1 

Performs a find. If no records are found, displays a custom dialog box. If records are found, sorts the found set.

Perform Find [Restore]
If [Get ( FoundCount ) = 0]
Show Custom Dialog ["Find Records"; "No records were found."]
Else
Sort Records [Restore; With dialog: Off]
End If
