    Newbie question - probelm with if statement

    myDavey Level 1

      Hello,

      I am pretty new to Javascript and InDesign

      I wrote something which seemed to be simple but its not working

      I want to condition that of the row is not a Header row and not a footer row then.... else ....

       

      alert(myRowType);

      if (myRowType != "HEADER_ROW" && myRowType != "FOOTER_ROW") {

          alert("BODY");

      } else {

          alert("NOT BODY");

          }

       

      Why is it that even when the first alert (before the condition) comes out  "HEADER_ROW"

      the second alert still shows "BODY"???

       

      (I know I can write if myRowType == "BODY_ROW", but there is a reason why I prefer not to - Although thats not working either)

       

       

       

      If someone can help me with this I would really appreciate it

       

      Thanks in advance!

      Davey
