  Sample input:
ForceZero ( InvoiceTotal )
  Sample output:
0

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

Useful where Fixed Number of Decimals cannot be used but zero is still necessary to avoid user confusion. Not all functions will return a zero--"Count" will but "Sum" won't.
