Custom function to calculate a proper Dutch name. In the Netherlands middlenames often have 'van 't' or 'van d'r'. And there are also a lot of double first names like 'Henk-Jan' or 'Jan-Willem'. In order to input the name in a proper way to prevent future problems I wrote this recursive function.
If exeptional names have to be entered you can write the '!' character in front of the name and it will be untouched.
Static parameters '_NamSrc' and '_Antl' are placed inside the function but can be placed outside as function parameters. In this way the function becomes even smaller and faster.
