  Sample input:
PmtBreakdown ( 1000 ; 7 ; "" ; 1 )
  Sample output:
6 monthly payment(s) of $142 and
one final payment of $148

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

Gives a payment breakdown summary based on either the "Quantity of Payments" or "A desired Payment Amount".

There is also a PARAMETER to "Add Final Payment to Last Payment" - set it "1" to add it to the last or "NULL" to not. I used a check box (value list = 1) to toggle this option.

If both the QtyPmts and PmtAmt have values in them, the result will be based on the QtyPmts value.
