    would have gone...if I did not

    I donít know how to write the sentence below correctly. Itís a mix of third conditional and second conditional which I know is incorrect.

    I would have gone to the gathering if I did not have a prior appointment.

    How should I write this sentence? I could not think of a way to change Ďdidí into the third condition.

    Thank you!
