  Sample input:
list.ToSqlIn ( "what¶can¶I¶find¶")
  Sample output:
( 'what', 'can', 'I', 'find', '')

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

Used to convert a list (often results for a find or UIDs from a related table) to a string I can use when creating a ExecuteSQL query. Very simple check for numb ears vs text. May well be something in the library that does a better job, but works well for me.
