I am trying to alter the Virtual Solar system Maple worksheet of Yi Xie in the way that I added several objects to the eight planets and Pluto (e.g. Hale-Bopp, Sedna, 2012 VP113 etc.) and would like to adjust the array such that when zooming out and the obrit and labels overlap so that it's unreadable anymore (orbits and labels) that I can switch on and off (respectively display/not display) specific parts, e.g. the inner solar system. In the original file a single array was created from 1..18 (including 9 orbital entries and 9 label entries). What I did is to create arrays for each part of the Solar system, e.g. Inner for the planets+Pluto 1..18, an array for Hale-Bopp with an orbital entry and a label entry, so [1,2], and an array with 6 entries for 3 additional objects like Sedna, Planet X and 2012 VP113. As well as the sun, which only has a single entry as there are no orbital elements necessary and one just makes a 3dplot (I did not label it, so just one entry). All arrays are converted into lists in the end and displayed. Here is the code:

The first error message appears after the if-condition. Can you tell me where I am making a mistake? Beware: when copy paste the code from Maple to Word and from Word in here the colons at the end of lines have changed into semi-colons. Hope this is no problem in executing the code despite the lines being in the same ">..." e.g. where the labels are defined.
