  Sample input:
NumToAlpha ( 27 )
  Sample output:
aa

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

Converts a number to it's alphabet equivalent.

Since there is no zero-equivalent in the alphbet, this function plays a few tricks with the starting positions to make zero-based, base ten input (0-9) conform to one-based, base twenty-six output. It is otherwise the same as DecToHex found at http://www.briandunning.com/cf/216
