```Hi everybody,

I have a small problem, and haven't found any solution yet. So I hope you
can help me.

I'd like to have describing text, comments and multiple calculations when
one condition is true, and others when it's false.

For example:

If[a>b,
do something here;
and something else here;
insert a text here;
else
do something;
and more;
]

As far as I tried this is not possible with the if condition provided?!
But I also think this quite easy to do, if you know how to.

Thanks for your help.

Hi, Pascal,
try this:

a = 3; b = 2;
If[a > b, Print["do something here;
and something else here;
insert a text here"],
Print["do something;
and more"]];

a = 3; b = 4;
If[a > b, Print["do something here;
and something else here;
insert a text here"],
Print["do something;
and more"]];

do something here;
and something else here;
insert a text here

do something;
and more

Have success, Alexei
