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

Sometimes you need to set a parameter in a URL based on data in a field in a record in FileMaker. This function simplifies that task. You can call this function repeatedly with different parameter names and data to set multiple parameters within the same URL.
