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

Employ (StartDate, EndDate).
Estimates the employment time between two dates. It is 100% accurate, because it does not use the usual devidors to estimate months or days (30,475, or 365,25). Fixes common problems as to include the day that an employment starts,not missing days between years and fixes many other problems that many similar functions can not solve.
