Sorry, I don't see any function code. Did you forget to insert the code?

No Robert, no function code. It's just that you can use this in calculations so it's name shows you what it is or does. It spares you to type in tab characters + comment each time you would like to use them. Nothing more than that.

Tab ( n )
//n is rounded between 1 and 400
Substitute ( 10 ^ Max ( 1 ; Min ( 400 ; Int ( n ) ) ) - 1 ; 9 ; Char ( 9 ) )
