  • Thanks for that QOTD Drew.

    I got a blank! result. 

    This is what '' two apostrophes with nothing between them means ... nothing.  The result was nothing not to be confused with NULL.

    Ironically, when I click your screenshot, my screen shows a blank result (no screenshot) in both Edge and Chrome browsers.

  • Oh Thanks.  Missed the trick.

  • nice question to recall the simple function....
