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

This function returns the value of a cell or a complete row from a csv table.

If the user enters a row number without a column number, the function will return the full row.

If the user enters a row number and a column number, the function will return the cell from the given row.

If the row or cell doesn't exist, the function will return an empty value.

You have to count the title row as a row if present.
