What is the problem causing this error message?

MetaEditor 5.00 Build 883 / MetaTrader 4 Build 604

Problem is here :

string Per(int thisperiod)
   {
   if(thisperiod==1){return("M1");}
   if(thisperiod==5){return("M5");}
   if(thisperiod==15){return("M15");}
   if(thisperiod==30){return("M30");}
   if(thisperiod==60){return("H1");}
   if(thisperiod==240){return("H4");}
   if(thisperiod==1440){return("D1");}
   if(thisperiod==10080){return("W1");}
   if(thisperiod==43200){return("MN1");}
returned value ?
    }

You declare a function which should return a string, but what if all "if" are false ?

By the way, maybe Subgenius must literally switch to a switch case statement (https://www.mql5.com/en/docs/basis/operators/switch) and use default label.
