OrderType() can not be used unless you do an OrderSelect() first.

Thanks Jimdandy,

You mean's first we need to select order number then we can use OrdersType() in my if statement.

 when i have 2 orders and i use 

Alert("You Have ",OrdersTotal(), " Orders");//Get All Open Order in Alert Message

 Alert message show correct numbers of orders but when i modify the order then it show Ordernumber 3 modify.

So then i thought

OrdersTotal()==1 && OrdersTotal()<2 && OrdersTotal()!=2

 is not work properly because after modify order we have the numbers of orders 3.
