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

Returns data in XML format for multiple records starting at startRow ending at Endrow. You may specify TYPE which will add a start and end tag for each record, see example.

MODIFIED 4/14/07

Added encodeflag required by new version of GetNthRecordXML. If encodedflag is set to 1 characters like ">" are encoded as "&gt;" otherwise field data is returned unchanged.
