Anyone know Progress (4GL) programming?

Argh... I'm pretty new at this stuff so here's a question. I have to convert files from one system to another and here's the correspondence for a specific field:

From - To
---- ----
C P = 2
O = 0
C = 1
CPP = 5
CRP = 5

My code looks like this:

ASSIGN table.field1 = IF status = "C P" THEN 2
ELSE IF status = "O" THEN 0
ELSE IF status = "C" THEN 1
ELSE IF status = "CPP" THEN 5
ELSE IF status = "CRP" THEN 5 ELSE well nothing...

I don't want the last ELSE since I don't want to load anything but if I don't include it I get a syntax error. Is there a way around this or a better way to do this? This isn't bad since there's only 5 possible choices, but I've got other fields which have over 100...
