A custom function which allows simple addition or extraction of values from a list.

Sample Input:
AddRemove ( 4; "2¶3¶4¶5¶" )
Sample Output:
2
3
5


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

This function is a simple tool. It simply adds or removes a value from a return delimited list of values. The area where this is most useful is when working with portals and clicking a portal row to add or remove an ID value from a global field storing a multi-key value.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

I have added the RightValues functions so you do not have to add an "¶" to the content parameter. To be sure the list closes with an enter.


Let (
[
content =RightValues ( ( content );ValueCount ( content ));
value_exists = PatternCount ( "¶" & content & "¶" ; "¶" & value & "¶" )
]
;
Case (

value_exists; MiddleValues ( Substitute ( "¶" & content; "¶" & value & "¶" ; "¶" ) ; 2 ; 1000000 );
content & value & "¶" )

)
