we have a subtask called by hundreds of existing tasks which today pass 2 values to that subtask.

I am now confronted by a new task which would pass 3 values. I know I could duplicate the subtask and it have it expect to receive 3 values.

However, I was wondering if a subtask can determine if 2 or 3 values were passed?

Could the Extended function "IsDefined()' be used ?

The number of values received by a subtask is relative to how the subtask is written. In other words, if your subtask is hardcoded for only 2 values, then there will be a conflict. However if the subtask is written to be dynamic (for example, looping through a list of values instead of hardcoding each value) then the subtask should be able to handle the additional values.
