If-then statements will evaluate the condition tokens as true or false  
and proceed accordingly. So in evaluating your line:

if "XYZ" then...

the engine will look at "XYZ", which is a literal string, and find  
that this string does not evaluate to "true" and then go to:

else if "ABC" then
(inserting the extra if, as Mark suggests)

and find that "ABC" does not evaluate to "true", and thus nothing will  
happen. What you need is something like:

if myVariable = "XYZ"  then
    click at the loc of btn "StartXYZ"
else if myVariable = "ABC" then
    click at the loc of btn "StartShani"
end if
