M language Document Introspection - "#sections" intrinsic variable and return value filtering

Hi,

 

I am wondering if anyone knows how to filter the global environment sections returned via call-out of the "#sections" intrinsic variable?

 

Here's a visual:

I've already tried "Record.FieldValues" functions but doing so results in the same issue - it will not recognize any values type Table, Function, etc. when attempting to filter.  any input is greatly appreciated!

you can adjust your syntax like this:

 

= Table.SelectRows(#"Added Custom", each Value.Is([Value], type table))

 

This will return all rows who contain Tables in the column "Values"
