  Sample input:
mkListMerge("<> is from <>")

(For a table "Data" with fields Name, City:
Name, City:
Adam, Andover
Bert, Boston
Charles, Charleston)
  Sample output:
"Adam is from Andover¶
Bert is from Boston¶
Charles is from Charleston"

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

This function is like List(), except instead of accepting a single field name, it accepts a string which can contain multiple field names delimited as <>.

If you do not include any valid merge fields, it only outputs the string once.

If you need to use << or >> in the string, escape them as \<\< or \>\>.
