Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
Very obviously based on the RemoveValues function, adapted to remove words from text. Created because I wanted to be able to remove common words from company name fields for simplified searching. For example when searching for 'The Filemaker Developers Company ltd' I will have a global for the toRemove containng words and abbreviations such as 'the', 'ltd', 'inc', 'co' giving me a key field of 'Filemaker Developers Company'. Then i will break this down using FilterKey nad FieldBeginsWith functions
