  • That is probably because your list is empty. Can you first check this? Commented Mar 9, 2016 at 14:18
  • No my list is not empty. I am able to read all the where used values.

For this scenario, you can try the following using core service as there is no built in methods for this:

    UsingItemsFilterData filterCriteria = new UsingItemsFilterData();
    filterCriteria.BaseColumns = ListBaseColumns.Id;
    filterCriteria.IncludeLocalCopies = true;
    var resultList =CoreServiceClient.GetList("SchemaURI", filterCriteria);

If you don't want to use or have core service the same can be achieved using TOM.Net API, there is a method on IdentifiableObject called HasUsingItems() which will give you the details also. Check this link once !!

You can have a look in this link which will give you ideas on how to use core service more effectively for similar kind of scenarios.

Let me know if this helps !!
