Goal

In Essbase calculation scripts, when an IF statement is performed, it will perform the first element of the IF statement first, check if the combination being calculated meets that criteria and calculate it if it does or pass to the next element, i.e the next ELSEIF.

This will continue through all the ELSEIF statements and then the ELSE (if present) if the combination does not meet any of the criteria of the IF or ELSEIF.

It is possible to optimise an IF statement by first analysing which condition will be met by the majority of your data and then to try and place this IF statement as near to the top of your IF statement as possible, if possible.
