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

This function simply returns a return delimited list of the selected field values for the current found set. It is great for gathering a list of ids.

This function should handle found sets under 50,000 records as per Filemaker's recursion limit.

Feedback welcome, especially potential improvements.
