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

Convert a month string, either full name or 3 char abbreviation, into its ordinal value. This is a trivial but handy function, but the main reason I'm posting is that it is required for the GetTextAsDate function I've also posted.
