This is a Great CF. I use it a lot. Heads up there is a limit to 10k in list. go to 10K + 1 and you get ?

Doesn't work on related fields, only field from the current table.

I noticed a problem when there are more related records than in the current found set, to remedy this I replaced the get( foundcount ) bit with count( field ) instead. this will count current and related records more accurately.

thank you for your useful CF, I hope my change helps others running into the same issue I had.

Re: Greg J

It sounds like you are using this custom function to get a list of related records? Instead you should be using the native "List()" function.

Hi, thanks for great function.

This is my variation due to extreamly slow FM get functions i think passing found count as value is much faster.
GetNthRecord ( field ; start ) &
Case (
start < found_count;
"¶" & found_set_field_list ( field ; start + 1; found_count )
)
