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.

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

Discuss:

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

My apologies for not uploading ValidEmail(), that is used in this function. It is now uploaded.
