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

Converts a FileMaker text string to a Base64 string. May be used together with "Convert_Text_to_UTF8" to ensure char values less than 256 in input string - as "Convert_Text_to_Base64 ( Convert_Text_to_UTF8 ( string ) )". The combined action of the two custom functions performs with double speed as "AscIIToBase64" (also briandunning.com) and handles all legal char. values in UTF-8.
