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

This custom function allows you to test the script parameter for multiple values. I usually use this custom function to trigger certain portions of a script. For example, when a script is separated by IFs and ELSEIFs I can send a script parameter to the script that triggers the first portion of the script, but not the second or third. I have found it to be extremely helpful when working with scripts!

NOTE: This custom function is DEPENDENT ON MY OTHER CUSTOM FUNCTION: PCSP. To use this custom function, you must also have the other.
