Returns list of values found in searchList at the same index as the position of SearchValue in textList.

List("2018-1";100;"2018-2"; "2018-1");
"TimeOff";1)

Description:

I often have a relation that I have filtered on. Example all pay adjustments for THIS year. When I need a quick count of values without making new relations (and not using slow sql). I can use this function. So the list( adj:type) will return a value list of all the adjustments. But I need to count all the quarter 1 items.

ValueCount(FilterValues( ITA_PositionIndexValues ( List( adjThisYear::type) ; List( adjThisYear::yearQuarter) ; "TimeOff" ; 1 ); "2018-1"))

If I want to see dates I could just pass in List( adjThisYear::Date) instead of quarter.
