  Sample input:
ListMentions ( "This is a message for @dd. Can you call @jj and @gh. @dd" )
  Sample output:
"@dd¶@jj¶@gh¶@dd"

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

It doesn't de-dupe @mentions - wrap the call in UniqueValues( ) if this is required. It is recursive, but depth should be equal to the number of @ symbols in the text.
