Extends the standard GetValue function to extract multiple values in a return delimited list

Sample Input:
GetValues ( "1¶2¶3¶4¶5¶6"; 3; 5 )
Sample Output:
3
4
5


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Function uses the GetValue function to extract a range of values from a return delimited list. Currently uses a start and stop value but could be modified to use a start and length value. You would need to modify the exit condition of "start < stop".

I tend to supply a length value to the stop parameter. (e.g. start + length = stop) or ( (start + length) - 1 = stop ).

Using a Let function makes things much easier!

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

Danny - Just change the "list" parameter to "theList" or another name.
