where Date's repetitions contain
Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
FullList is like List, except that it includes repetitions that are empty or zero. This is particularly useful when there are two associated fields, one fully populated (like dates of a month) and one partially populated (things that happened on those dates, where sometimes nothing happened), where you wish to find something in the second list and use its repetition number to determine the associated value in the first list. You could do the same thing by just reading the field; this allows for much faster computations by reading the field in one fell swoop, and thereafter keeping the information in memory.
