This is super helpful but I have an array of number (0.00, 5.00, 10.00, and 20.00) and I am trying to exclude the 0.00.  When I set the FilterBy to 0.00, it excludes 0.00 but also excludes 10.00 and 20.00.  Any ideas?

Hi @erictobias 

Try changing the filter line to this:


Amazing!  Thank you so much!  It now returns 20.00, 10.00, and 5.00 as intended.  If I add Set.sort(); it returns 10.00 before 5.00.  Any idea how to solve that?
