Question regarding using IsEmpty
More and more lately, I find myself using = "" instead of IsEmpty. For example, instead of writing
IsEmpty ( Acct::FirstName )
Acct::FirstName = ""
because it's easier and faster to do that. Is there really a difference I should be concerned about?
The two are equivalent in current versions of FileMaker. I prefer IsEmpty myself because
Acct::FirstName = "" and Acct::FirstName = " "
look very similar but aren't the same at all.
