in reply to Would you use 'goto' here?

I myself wouldn't. The only time I can recall ever using goto is in my recent cron script. As a means of effectively restarting the program.

To me this really seems to be a case for using if/else contructs. One question though, why aren't you checking for the officeID outside of the sub? Since you are apparently checking other things before to determine which sub to call...
