Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This custom function lets you put field names in "<<" and ">>" that will be evaluated at runtime and display field contents. Useful for creating a template style system to allow users to create their own letters or email with merged data. Especially useful for creating dynamic emails without allowing the user access to the scriptmaker.
This also merges any function available, since it uses the evaluate function, so it's possible for your template to contain get(currentdate) for example, to display the current date.

Works well. The text argument needs to be placed in quotes:
MailMerge ( "Welcome, <<name>>. You have been enrolled in << class>>." )
