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

this function is an easy way to code faster text in FileMaker. Using " & $var & " is not the simplest way to do stuff.
With this function, within your text you may include variables, calculations etc that will make your code clean.
The only con of this method is that it's not recommended for typing field names or custom functions inside, for FMP will not be able to adjust them if you make any adjustments on the CFs or names
