--- input ---
  Sample output:
1st step 876.
2nd step 876.543.
3rd step 876.543.21

the last string is returned back to "FormatNumber" function. (dot if it's the chosen thousand separator!)

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

This is a subfuntion functional to the main custom function "FormatNumber". It puts the chosen thousand separator into the INT part of the number passed by "FormatNumber".
Please note it returns an inverted string; so "FormatNumber" needs another function: "Reverse ( string )". I didn't upload it because You can find two similar functions in this website. Search for: "Reverse"
