What do you mean "too long for one line"? There is no max. limit on how long a line can be. Likely that your text editor, or whatever you're using, is simply "wrapping" the IF line when it gets too long - but your code should still work normally. You can use an unlimited number of OR statements.

If you want, open your file in notepad (or whatever your os has) and that should display your IF statement without the new line. If it doesn't, delete the new line. Just to reiterate - lines can be as long as you like them. I'm sure I've written longer lines of javascript! (-;

Hi, Thank You for the assisting.
I was opening it notepad (js file) but to check if was correct i double click the js file & it would complain about the If line
because it breaks oof to the next line.

I done this to get me going for the time being:

What exactly was the error you were getting? A "line is too long" error, surely not!?

The if would break to next line

If ... test
="" || test2="")

Error: At line: 50
Expected ")"

after having a look at the code first i would suggest to write a short helper method to shorten the code:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var getElVal = function(id) {
  2.     return document.getElementById(id).value;
  3. }
so you might use it like (and don't need to retype document.getEle mentById().valu e that much):
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if ( (getElVal('VE1020User') == "LOCAL" 
  2.     || getElVal('VE1020User') == "NATIONAL") 
  3.     && getElVal('VE1060NewSupplier') == "Yes" 
  4.     && getElVal('VE10IntVendorFields') == "True" ) {
  6.     // do something here
  7. }
basicly a condition don't need to be one line ... it is opened and terminated with corresponding brackets, so you could simply linebreak it. for readabilty it is best to have the conditions well seperated per line.

kind regards
