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

Function can be used to easily build a dynamically filtered portal. It loops (using While() function) through the provided terms in a filter field and returns "true" for every portal rows matching ALL search terms. Highly efficient matching due to use of Position() instead of PatternCount().
