Thanks Fabrice for the non-recursive option. The problem I have with CustomList is that it behaves like the native List function in FMP in that it doesn't list null values. In Koji's example data, his custom function will at least correctly include null values in the list. Agreed, though, I wish this was non-recursive.

The only non-recursive solution I know is actually using a script "Get Values in Found Set ( FieldName )" in Todd Geist's HyperList custom script module. It is also faster than CustomList and can capture up to 5 fields per record.

Hi,

For CustomList, If you want null value, you must say in your calculation, you tag null value :

Substitute (
CustomList ( 1 ; get ( foundcount ) ; """[.nv.]"" & getnthrecord ( field ; [n] )" ) ;
[ "[.nv.]" ; "" ] )

give the null value

Looking at Agnès comment above on how to include a null value

Substitute (
CustomList ( 1 ; get ( foundcount ) ; """[.nv.]"" & getnthrecord ( field ; [n] )" ) ;
[ "[.nv.]" ; "" ] )

I tried this and other variations of it, but could not make it work.

Any help on how to include records with null values in the list using CustomList, would be appreciated

First name and last name are not interchangeable. I think there is a typo here:


nameLast = "Shin" on record 1, "Koji" on record 2, "Kazuhiko" on record 3, "" on Record 4, "Satsuki" on record 5, "Kaori" on record 6

ListValues ( nameFirst )

Lol. You're right, Dennis.
Thanks, I corrected the field name.
