  Sample input:
RangesOverlap ( 1 ; 10 ; 5 ; 15 )
  Sample output:

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

This will return 1 or 0 depending on if the two ranges overlap. The inputs can be numbers or dates, but because the function uses GetAsNumber, be sure to input an actual date data type if using dates. Date strings like "11/23/2018" will be converted to 11232018, which will return unexpected results if you intended to compare dates.
