Functions FieldValue, FieldValueCount, FieldIndex to accept a new optional parameter : table name

Hello,

I often use FieldValue ( https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/November2019/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/ChartFunctions/Inter... ) to script some loops. However, when you have the same field name in different table, it does not work, you have to rename the field.

I think just having an optional third parameter  -the table name- would be a great improvement on this function. Same for other field functions : FieldValueCount, FieldIndex

Best regards,

Simon
