Description:

We use this function often in our credit repair business' custom-built FileMaker application when generating documentation for the client. A simple but useful function. Thanks!

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

The syntax of this CF is incorrect:

USStateName ( StateAbbrev ; StateFullName )

You obviously do not need to supply the StateFullName to receive it as output!

Correct syntax would be:

USStateName ( StateAbbrev )

A problem with this CF is that no error condition is passed. What happens if I enter AB as a state abbreviation - no result. There should at least be some default condition to indicate an error has occurred.

Please feel free to modify as needed. Works for what we require, 'nuff said.

The problem with this function is that it isn't a function at all. It's a table of data.
