(SOLVED) excel2k pivot questions - dynamic cache fields

Depending on a user selected variable I want the cache fields to change.

I am doing something like this:

-DEFAULT &NUM TO 'ODD';
CACHEFIELDS
-IF &NUM = 'ODD' THEN GOTO L_ODD;
-IF &NUM = 'EVEN' THEN GOTO L_EVEN;
-L_ODD;
ONE THREE FIVE SEVEN NINE
-GOTO L_END;
-L_EVEN
TWO FOUR SIX EIGHT TEN
-L_END

Is there a better way than this?

The GOTO's make it less readable I think.
Maybe something like this ?

-DEFAULTH &NUM = 'ODD'
-SET &CACHEFIELDS = DECODE &NUM(
-   'ODD'    'ONE THREE FIVE SEVEN NINE'
-   'EVEN'   'TWO FOUR SIX EIGHT TEN'
-);

CACHEFIELDS &CACHEFIELDS
