Hi,

Why you don't use FilterValues ?

Not isEmpty ( FilterValues ( _TableNames_List ; Get ( LayoutTableName ) ) )

Hi Agnes,
thank you, good question,

maybe I had some kind of blackout that moment I made it.
FilterValues is much easyer.
but I used my function for a long time and it is working perfectly.

So who ever need that kind of function now has 2 versions of it.
The easy version and the experimental version.
:-)
