  Sample input:
  Sample output:
Fifteen and 50/100 percent (15.50%)

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

This Function is based on a few others that I've seen here and elsewhere, but addresses problems that I encountered with those other functions.

Specifically, I ran into issues with the conversion of values to the right of the decimal place; e.g., '15.50' would be converted to 'Fifteen and 5/100 percent (15.50%).' In some cases, there were also issues with the conversions when the value entered was 100%.

For this Function, make sure that the calculation result is 'text' and that the storage is set to 'unstored.' Also, the input values should always be to two decimal places (e.g., 10.05).
