@Andre T6 Not sure this is what you are looking for. Your logic in the if statement need to bracket properly.
if(CurrContent2 < 5){
    token.item.destination = Model.find("Queue5");
}
else 
{
    if(CurrContent < MaxContent)


    {
        token.item.destination = Model.find("Queue4");
    }
    else
    {
    total += 50;
        if (randomnum <= total)
        {
            token.item.destination = Model.find("Queue2");
        }
        else
        {
            token.item.destination = Model.find("Queue3");
        }
    }
}

@David Chan I'm sorry for my late comment.

My custom code almost look like the one you create above, and have the same result, which is taking the item from queue 1 and send it directly to queue 5 when currcontent2<5. But what i want to do is when the currcontent 2<5,an item taken from queue2 or queue3 (because it come first/ fifo order) and send it to queue5 until currcontent2 >5 and after currcontent2 > 5, the item that has been stack in queue1 will be taken to queue4

Hi @Andre T6,

The problem with this logic is that the only items that use this Custom Code activity are items currently located in Queue1. This doesn't allow you to change that logic to move an item from Queue2 or Queue3 instead.

I would recommend that you rethink your logic on which items you are pulling from the list and set the destination accordingly.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you have further questions!
