  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Non recursive custom function for colum break after a certain amount of linebreaks.

I needed this functionality to break text that is in one field into multiple colums on apage (i.e. 3 colums, each 52 lines high).

Requires the text to be formated with line breaks, for example with the CF "LineWrap" that can be found on www.brinandunnings.com
