Help converting old EL to MC

Hi,

I have some old EasyLanguage code, circa 1996, and I am trying to convert it to MC ver 8. I know that the old EXITLONG is now SELL and the old EXITSHORT is now BUYTOCOVER but can anybody help me with the following code?

 
Code
IF BBUY=99999 THEN BUY("ID/NR4 SX") SX STOP;
IF SSELL=0 THEN SELL("ID/NR4 LX") LX STOP;
IF BBUY<99999 THEN BUY("ID/NR4 Buy") BBUY STOP;
IF SSELL>0 THEN SELL("ID/NR4 Sell") SSELL STOP;
What do I need to do to convert the above code to ver 8 MC?

Thanks.

I think this should work- (you still have to change it to "sell" to close "Longs" and buytocover to close shorts..)

 
Code
IF BBUY=99999 THEN BUY("ID/NR4 SX") next bar at SX STOP;
IF SSELL=0 THEN SELL("ID/NR4 LX") next bar at LX STOP;
IF BBUY<99999 THEN BUY("ID/NR4 Buy") next bar at BBUY STOP;
IF SSELL>0 THEN SELL("ID/NR4 Sell") next bar at SSELL STOP;

Thanks sptrader. I managed to get the code to compile successfully but it isn't plotting anything so obviously, I am doing something wrong.

Not sure I am allowed to post the code because it's copyrighted. Thanks for the help.
