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

I often use script parameters which send a carriage return delimited list of values. When parsing out these values in scripts, it became annoying to repeatedly type GetValue( Get( ScriptParameter ) ; 1 ). By using this custom function, all that needs to be typed is SP( 1 ). Seems like a small change, but has saved me a huge amount of time.
