You need Filemaker Pro Advanced to be able to create custom functions. You can only make use of custom functions in the ordinary pro versions if they are already present in the file at hand.

You can backwards-engineer that one easily enough as a calc field or calc function within a script if you do NOT have Advanced.


Year(date)&Right ("0"&month(date), 2) & Right( "0"&day(date), 2)
