Dear Listers,
I have data with codes for the members who collected the data and I would like to assert that these codes are correct.

Here is what I have done

global member "john" // defined in another do-file

*** do-file that checks member codes *****
cd c:\temp/$member

input houscode memid
1 10101
2 10101
3 10101
end

if $member == "jane" {
assert memid == 10201
}
else if $member == "john" {
assert memid == 10101
}
exit

When I run this code, I get an error message -john not found-. What I had hoped is that this code would take the information in the $member and them check that the variable memid has the correct code

Am I missing something obvious. Please help

Ronnie
