Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
The new MiddleValues function in FileMaker 7 returns a result with a trailing return character. Here is a quote for the MiddleValues function from the FileMaker 7 online help.
"Each returned value ends with a carriage return, allowing lists to be easily concatenated."
It is more time consuming to remove the trailing return when extracting a value from a list than to add a return when concatenating lists. The MiddleItems custom function works the same as the MiddleValues function without the trailing return.
