If a sheriff announces that they will be continuing a court case, it means that they are postponing the case until a later date. This may be to allow time for something to happen, for example, for a tenant to set up a repayment agreement with their landlord. If a case you're involved with is continued, you'll be told the date on which it'll next be heard in court. If your case is continued, it'll still be on the rolls of court - this is different from what happens if your case is sisted. You can find out more about court decisions here.
