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

I use this function in recipes to convert the value of "number" "from" a unit measure "to" another . The function works with weight and capacity measure units: g. hg. kg. oz. fl.oz. gal. l. ml. cl. dl. cup. tsp. tbsp. lb and pint are recognized almost in any combination.
(Updated 16/06/2005: Bug fixed with Case () function: no more than 128 matches are allowed...)
