To determine whether a picture variable or field is empty, you can compare it with an empty picture variable. To do so create a picture variable without assigning any data to it.

For example:

C_PICTURE (vEmptyPicture)
If ([Table]PictureField=vEmptyPicture)
` [Table]PictureField is empty
` Do something
End if
