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

This is the companion function for isNull(). Together these functions can be used to look for missing values, parameters, etc. I frequently set the return of scripts to Null in cases of errors.
This function just returns the string "NULL". This makes it easy to test for. For example If( test1; "foo"; Null)
