  Sample input:
DateValuesStrict ( "12/21/2005" ; "12/26/2005" )
  Sample output:
12/21/2005
12/22/2005
12/23/2005
12/24/2005
12/25/2005
12/26/2005

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

This is similar to the DateValues function, but it is strict. It requires both dates and dateBegin must be less than or equal to dateEnd.

Your parameter names don't match your code. Here is the corrected code:


Let ( [
dateList = Case (
dateBegin = "" ; "?";
dateEnd = "" ; "?";
not IsValid ( GetAsDate ( dateBegin ) ) ; "?";
not IsValid ( GetAsDate ( dateEnd ) ) ; "?";
GetAsDate ( dateBegin ) > GetAsDate ( dateEnd ) ; "?";
dateBegin = dateEnd ; dateEnd & ¶;
dateBegin & ¶ & DateValuesStrict ( GetAsDate ( dateBegin ) + 1 ; GetAsDate ( dateEnd ) )
);
result = dateList
];
result
)
