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

Similar to my getNthRow function, this returns data for all the specified fields, for the Nth record of a found set or relationship. Fields must be in a return separated list. If no match is found the result is empty.

Inspired by Andy Knasinski's GetFieldsAsXML custom function.

ADDED: encodeflag option. If encodeflag is set to 1, data is encoded in so that characters like XML pointy brackets are encoded; otherwise all field data is passed without any changes.
