2. b
3. c

Chapter 8 <tab> Delta
Chapter 10 <tab> Echo


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

In above function there is a mistake in first case, Please copy and paste the below function:

Let (

[
countValues = ValueCount ( listOfValues )
] ;



Case ( countValues > 1 ; SerializeValues ( textToIncrement ; LeftValues ( listOfValues ; countValues - 1 ) ; incrementBy ) & ¶ )
&
Case ( countValues ; SerialIncrement ( textToIncrement ; countValues * incrementBy ) & GetValue ( listOfValues ; countValues ) )
)
