List.Skip

Syntax

List.Skip(list as list, optional countOrCondition as any) as list

About

Returns a list that skips the first element of list list. If list is an empty list an empty list is returned. This function takes an optional parameter, countOrCondition, to support skipping multiple values as listed below.

  • If a number is specified, up to that many items are skipped.
  • If a condition is specified, the returned list begins with the first element in list that meets the criteria. Once an item fails the condition, no further items are considered.
  • If this parameter is null, the default behavior is observed.

Example 1
