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

This function will convert a properly abbreviated IP6 into its full address ( 8 sets of 16bit [hexadecimal] numbers ). Properly abbreviated IP6 allows for only 1 grouping of zero sets (no matter how many sets in a row) to be represented by '::'. All other zero sets (separate from the grouping identified with '::') must either be :0: or :0000:. More than one occurance of '::' will produce an error.
