    If Statement, is there a better way?

    Mark Pratt

      I'm working on transaction data to find customer paying competitors. The data isn't straight forward, so I've had to find common characteristics that I can match on to decipher who the payment is going too. This has led to a moderately long if statement with more needing added. I need a better alternative as with this being transaction data includes millions of lines of data, thus with the If Statements makes it even slower and clunkier. Thanks!
