Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
A custom function for figuring when Easter falls in any given year, is based on the algorithm of Oudin (1940). More information can be found about the calculation at <http://tech.irt.org/articles/js052/>. In fact, the custom function used in this example was copied from that page with little modification.
I created an additional custom function:
Floor ( num )
In order to copy/paste in code with little modification. This really shows the power of the Let function.

|Perhaps you mean 'floor' and not 'math.floor'? Also, for holiday calculations, it's worth pointing out that it's Easter Sunday, so Good Friday and Easter Monday are -2 and + 1 days respectively.|
