    Hello Ideaz,

    After investigating this further, I determined that your request could be achieved in three ways. I have made three samples, demonstrating the possible approaches:

    • The following sample could be used if you don’t need the key and only the value of your data.
    • If every key is unique, you can use map to find the value of the required item. This is demonstrated in this sample.
    • If the previous samples aren’t suitable for your requirement, the following one could be used.

    Please let me know whether these suggestions help you achieve your requirement or if you need more information.
