  Sample input:
NormProb ( 2 )
  Sample output:
.977249867045

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

This custom function returns the Gaussian (Normal) probability integral (area under the Bell curve) to the left of x (including the area to the left of the y axis). This is the left-tail of the probability distribution. To get the right-tail (which is 1 - NormProb (x)), call the function with the argument -x.
