This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

With FileMaker 10, "Code" is no longer allowed as a parameter name since it is now the name of an internal function.

A simple change of "Code" to something like "CodeLabel" everywhere in the function will suffice.

Very many thanks - an excellent resource.

This certainly beats:

"$" & Int (Round (Number;2)) & "." & Right (Round (Number;2) * 100;2)

Thank you very much!

Thanks for this. I added another parameter for thousands separator so it has the option of using one or not.
