Description:

I'm worked on this function for a long time and have been adding features that I've found useful in many scripts and auto-enter fields.

Although it is working great I would appreciate any feedback or suggestions on how to improve it.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Is there a dependency to ValidEmail()? Where can I get that?
