It is almost impossible to answer a question like this with no code to 
examine.

In Mathematica, you should use Goto (note the capitalisation and lack of 
space) as an absolute last resort (i.e. never!). There are loop 
constructs like While that can take care of just about any situation, 
not to mention the higher level functional constructions.
