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

Custom function implementation of Neville's algorithm for polynomial interpolation; see's_algorithm .
The degree of the interpolating polynomial is determined by the length of the lists x resp. y; if ValueCount(x)=n then the degree is n-1.
The sample output above therefore is the value of the third degree interpolating polynomial at t=3,24.
