Description:

YearValues generates a return delimited list of years for the given range. It does not care if the first year is higher than the second. It will calculate the range in either direction. If one value is invalid or null, it will return the other. This makes it useful for filtering a portal, so a user only has to enter one year of the two.

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:

What is it that would be considered a "Bad year" as defined by the IsValid function? You can enter "A" as a year and that is considered "valid"! But it doesn't return sensible results. This is not correct usage of the IsValid function.
