I have worked some more with this code and determined the best option is to OUTPUT a single record at the beginning of my filtering process. That was I always have at least one observation.
Then when I get to the EMAIL section, I then check to see if I have only one Observation. If I do then I just put out the "NO WTORS FOUND" notice.
If there is a better way to do this let me know, but I think this is the only solution I could find.
Thanks for helping me to understand the SET and NOOBS situation better.
