This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

The built in FMP function:

NumToJText ( number ; 1 ; 0 )

inserts a comma every 3 digit, so NumToJText ( 1234.56 ; 1 ; 0 ) returns 1,234.56

Thanks Raybaudi, you're right!
I'm Japanese but I never use NumToJText function ;-)

This CF fails if the number submitted is a negative number whose absolute value has a length that is a multiple of the Digit, i.e. -107 is returned as 0,107.

I have corrected this using the code here:

(This code starts after the declaration of the MSG variable)

CHECK =
GetAsNumber ( Number ) ;
SIGN =
If ( CHECK < 0 ; "-" ; "" ) ;
SOURCE =
Abs ( GetAsNumber ( Number ) ) ;
DIGIT =
Case (
not IsEmpty ( GetAsNumber ( Digit ) ) ;
GetAsNumber ( Digit ) ;
3
) ;
SPLIT =
Substitute ( GetAsText ( SOURCE ) ; "." ; ¶ ) ;
INTVAL =
GetValue ( SPLIT ; 1 ) ;
DECIMAL =
GetValue ( SPLIT ; 2 ) ;
CURRENT =
Right ( INTVAL ; DIGIT ) &
Case (
not IsEmpty ( DECIMAL ) ;
"." & DECIMAL
) ;
REST =
Left ( INTVAL ; Length ( INTVAL ) - DIGIT )
] ;

Case (
ERROR ;
MSG ;

Length ( INTVAL ) > DIGIT ;
Commas ( SIGN & REST ; DIGIT ) & "," & CURRENT ;
SIGN & SOURCE
)
)

I hope this helps,

Steve
