This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Discovered that, when feeing in a repeat value programmatically, a repeat value of 0 would act as if a repeat value of 1 rather than returning an empty result.

Case (
numRepeat > 1 ; RepeatValue ( text ; numRepeat - 1 ) & "¶" & Text ;
numRepeat < 1 ; "" ;
Text
)

fixes that.
