# How to Skip Current Iteration of for-Loop in R Programming (Example Code)

This article shows how to skip an iteration in case an if-condition is fulfilled in the R programming language.

## Example: Don’t Run Specific Iterations within for-Loop Using next Function

for(iter in 1:3) { # for-loop without next function cat(paste("My Iteration No.", iter, "n")) } # My Iteration No. 1 # My Iteration No. 2 # My Iteration No. 3 |

for(iter in 1:3) { # for-loop without next function cat(paste("My Iteration No.", iter, "n")) } # My Iteration No. 1 # My Iteration No. 2 # My Iteration No. 3

for(iter in 1:3) { # for-loop with next function if(iter == 2) next cat(paste("My Iteration No.", iter, "n")) } # My Iteration No. 1 # My Iteration No. 3 |

for(iter in 1:3) { # for-loop with next function if(iter == 2) next cat(paste("My Iteration No.", iter, "n")) } # My Iteration No. 1 # My Iteration No. 3
