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

Streamlines creation of multiple calculated name-address blocks.
Automatically closes up blank lines.
I've always found it easier to deal with a calculated address block for invoice headers, labels, etc., rather than with groups of individual fields.

Note: non-US addresses may need further development.
