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

Simplified version of Tim Andersons "visualise" function.
Self-contained, does not require calling another function.

Tim liked my suggestions but suggested posting it as a separate function.

(And it uses the American spelling of visualize!)
