Re: Create empty collection

Hi @ck25415 

 

ClearCollect(colEmpty,Blank())

 

This will create a empty collection with a column called "Value"

Re: Create empty collection

You can create a collection with no data if that's what you need. For example:

ClearCollect(SampleCollection,
{
    Field1: Blank(),
    Field2: Blank()
});

Re: Create empty collection

Hi @ck25415 ,
For an absolutely blank Collection, you can do ClearCollect(colTestBlank, {}). The results of this one are:

Re: Create empty collection

Hi @ck25415 ,

Could you describe more clearly about the empty collection's structure?

Does the collection have fields?

Which do you extrally want

1)have fields with empty value?

2)have no field?

3)something else?

Re: Create empty collection

@RezaDorrani Thanks, that worked. I tried ClearCollect(emptyCol,"") and other suggestions from this post but the count  showed 1 even though there are no items in the collection.
