  Sample input:
GetValueCustom ( "abc|123|456|789" ; "|" ; 2)
  Sample output:
123

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

You can use this to define a custom delimiter and retrieve the values. This is useful if your text has returns in it and you cannot use the GetValue() function provided by filemaker.
