Creates a tab character. Attribution for this idea goes to Love, Lane & Bowers "FileMaker Pro 8 Functions & Scripts Desk Reference"

A cf I previously posted made use of this function on the wrong assumption that everyone would know what was meant by it.

It is simply a way of using the tab character in a formula -- as we can do natively with the return (or pilcrow) character.
