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

Allows you to input a single letter (A-Z) or a number (0-9) and depending on the outputType you specify, it will return the official NATO verbose, morse code, or phonetic equivalent.

Potentially helpful for help desk solutions where the staff needs to read back the proper information using the NATO phonetic equivalent.
