  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Returns list of all unique underlying Base Tables for all LOCAL Table Occurrences in the current FileMaker Pro v12 file. This requires FileMaker Pro v12 as it uses the new ExecuteSQL function released in FileMaker Pro v12. N.B. it will only return a list of Table names for Table Occurrences that are on the relationship graph - if you have a Local Table with no associated Table Occurrences on the graph it will not appear in the result. File must be hosted too.

A mistake (probably autocorrect). It's now fixed. Thanks.
