  Sample input:
ImportoInLettere ( 1237,24 )
  Sample output:
milleduecentotrentasette/24

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

// IMPORTANT: you need also ImportoInLettereRicorsiva

// Given a number - in format xxxxxxxxxx,yy - translate in letters the integer part xxxxxxxxxx and append /yy (in numbers) at the end
// This is the way amounts are re-written in Italy to spell the number and check the correctness.
// It exploits a recursive function, that provides the litteral translation of the integer part.
// The second parameter of ImportoInLettereRicorsiva, that indicates the position (and so the value) of digits, at the beginning is 0.
