  Sample input:
EANofISBN ( "978" ; "ISBN 0-7897-3028-6" )
  Sample output:
9780789730282

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

EAN barcodes of books are generated from their ISBN#. This function does that trick. The pool number can differ because of the change in ISBN number from 10 to 13 digits (see http://www.niso.org/standards/resources/ISBN.html )
To get a correct ISBN number for this function, you can use the ISBN custom function that I posted here too.
