This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

There's a typo in line
vSchalter= Case (pSchalter="E";vExakt;pSchalter="V";vVerify);

Should replace "pSchalter" with "pSwitch" twice.

IMHO, you should …

1. add the function signature to the internal comment, and be clear about the arguments that can be passed, and their function ('pMaxCounter = ZählerMax' … that's enlightening!)

2. use consistent naming in the sample input, the function name and the function itself

3. apply proper formatting and whitespace

4. use better variable names, and avoid confusing re-assignments in mid-calculation

5. learn how to use Let[] variables effectively, including implicit creation of boolean statements without Case()

6. be aware that ¶ is not a string, but an operator, and on its own doesn't require quotes

7. test your CFs with the actual code you're posting; this one doesn't work as advertised, even when using the correct argument name

8. write in English only, and use a spell checker

Apart from that: not bad … :-)
