I have a field that receives a bunch of first names from a portal, thanks to the List function. The result might look like this:
Alice, Bill, Chuck
However, I need for the list to read:
Alice, Bill, and Chuck
I need to find the last comma in the text and add an "and" to it. I have been messing around with the Position function stuffed inside of a Substitute function, but I can't get it right. Can someone help?

I have a few situations where I need to be something specific having to do with dates.
For the sake of this example, let's say we're dealing with pay periods.
payperiods table will have 1 record for each pay period. It will have a pay period number, a date the pay period starts and a date the pay period ends. See attachment table.png
From other tables, when a user enters a date...I need to be able to return the pp_number for which that date belongs.
For instance, entering 7/12/2014 would return 2. Â Entering 7/19/2014 would return 3.
Nothing is set in stone here, I'm open to a different structure, I just need an efficient way of looking up the pay period number.
Thanks in advance!!!
im still a bit of a beginner with filemaker
i have been trying to figure this out but need a little help.
I have this function
If (GetAsDate ( Date1) - GetAsDate ( Date2 ) < 0 ; Date1 + 28 ; Date1 )
What i need is to turn it in to a loop
so that 28 is added to Date1 until Date1 is higher than Date2
I have tries and testes let function and loop,
if any one could help
I have a text field with a text that contains normal and red-bold characters, I would like to count the number of characters with bold style. Could anyone help me to do this operation with a function?
I am trying to do an script that extracts the portion of normal text to calculate the length and then calculate the number of total characters minus normal text.
What is the best option? a function or an script?
Thank you very much,
