This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

There a few typos in your CF.

You warned that this CF reqired a CF "GetSelectedText()", available here. That CF doesn't exist. However there is one called "getActiveSelection" that will work using your parameter.

In addition, the CF formula is not complete, as you used GetSelectedText without the parameter
