  Sample input:
PayDay ( 01/01/01; 2 )
  Sample output:
"Pay Day!"

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

Today is the date you'd like to check. Frequency is based on weeks (How often a paycheck is issued).

If you get paid on a day other than "Friday", edit the function.

I actually use this as a Boolean for custom formatting on a calendar. If it's "Pay Day" or 1 then I change the fill to green.

Case(Mod(WeekOfYear ( today );numweeks) = 0 and DayName( today ) = "Friday"; 1; 0)
