Due to recent changes in the Google Maps API, some problems have arisen with displaying a map within a WebViewer. An error message is displayed that says "The Google Maps Embed API must be used in an iframe.". This function uses the Google Static Maps API rather than the normal interactive one. If you need an interactive map this CF won't work for you but if you just need to display a map for a Print layout or other purpose this will get you what you need.
The original format for the "GoogleAddress" function from "menno" on FMForums for an iFrame based URL but has been heavily modified. I retained his Substitute() portion of the calculation which will convert various accented characters to non-accented (I've not had a chance to test this but I'm assuming it helps with addresses containing those characters).
