I have a stored procedure that inserts data into tables according to conditions

I need to stop treatment as a condition to continue without knowing that I have no cursor, so I can not use break
example

if a
    insert into table1 ...
if b
    insert into table2 ...
if c
    insert into table3 ...

I want to stop the treatment if the condition b is good, should not pass the condition even if the condition c is c

I want to use goto: how

You can use else clauses like shown in the example below.
declare @x int; set @x = 2;

if @x > 3
begin
	select 'GT 3';
end
else if @x > 2
begin
	select 'GT 2'
end
else if @x > 1
begin
	select 'GT 1';
end

Even if the code block in each if/else clause is long, it should work correctly as long as you wrap each block in a begin/end construct as I have shown in the example.

That's exactly what it does. YOU decide where to put the GOTOs


DECLARE @Counter int;
SET @Counter = 1;
WHILE @Counter < 10
BEGIN 
    SELECT @Counter
    SET @Counter = @Counter + 1
    IF @Counter = 4 GOTO Branch_One --Jumps to the first branch.
    IF @Counter = 5 GOTO Branch_Two  --This will never execute.
END
Branch_One:
    SELECT 'Jumping To Branch One.'
    GOTO The_End; --This will prevent Branch_Two from executing.
Branch_Two:
    SELECT 'Jumping To Branch Two.'
The_End:
