Goal

Why B1300040 and other similar business function such as B0500690 ignore empty segment/token and return token of next filled segment ?
When trying to parse a record from a delimited text file using function B1300040, if a segment(s) are empty the function returns value of next non empty segment instead.

Example:-
1000|test|||100.0 which has segments 3 & 4 as empty, the function returns 100 in segments 3 processing.
