IF JOIN-COLLECT is blank returns #INVALID COLUMN VALUE

Options

Hello!

I have written a formula to drawn data from another sheet, however, when I add "IF(ISBLANK(" to it, it breaks. I've tried doing this two different ways:

`=IF(JOIN(COLLECT({HF23 Vendors Acc/Dec}, {HF23 Vendors Email}, [Email 1]@row, {HF23 Vendors Acc/Dec}, "Yes"), ", ") = "", false, true)`


`=IF(ISBLANK(JOIN(COLLECT({HF23 Vendors Acc/Dec}, {HF23 Vendors Email}, [Email 1]@row, {HF23 Vendors Acc/Dec}, "Yes"), ", ")), false, true)`

What I can't figure out is why the Column Values are ok if I just run the nested Join/Collect, but checking if it's blank breaks it. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks! :)
