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

Description:

Returns the inverse error function of x (commonly represented as erfinv(x) in other programming environments). The calculation happens by means of a Taylor/Maclaurin series expansion. The coefficients for the terms of the series are memoized in variables to improve performance in repeated calls to the function within the same local scope.

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