Combines a text constant (ID) with each date in a date range to make a multi-key that has the text constant on each line

Sample Input:
ID = "Darren"
StartDate = "4/1/2004"
EndDate = "4/3/2004"
Sample Output:
Darren 731672
Darren 731673
Darren 731674


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

This custom function takes a date range and a text constant (ID) and constructs a multi-key that has the ID on every line. It builds the multi-key to contain each of the dates in the date range from StartDate to EndDate.

This function could be easily modified to allow a text constant to be appended to each line of a return-separated list of values.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.
