What's the purpose of `Case` with VBA's `Select` statement?
VBA has a Select statement that chooses which code to run based on a value (much like switch in C-style languages). The syntax for this statement looks like:
Select Case x Case 1 'do one thing Case 2 'do a different thing End Select
What is the purpose of the Case right after Select? Alternatively, what is the meaning of Select without Case?
There is no such thing as a Select statement in VBA. There is a Select Case statement.
Therefore, strictly speaking, the answers to your questions are: There is none, and there is none.
It's a bit like asking what is the meaning of Pri without nt and vice-versa... There is no particularly exciting answer to that question.
