Custom Functions and Master Calendar

//custom defined functions
 Let fGreaterNumber = 'if(num($2) >= num($1), num($2), num($1))';
 // How to use:
 // =$(fGreaterNumber(30,100)) give you the greater number of the two, which is 100

Let fSmallerNumber = 'if(num($2) <= num($1), num($2), num($1))';
 // How to use:
 // =$(fGreaterNumber('1/1/2016','1/1/2017')) give you 1/1/2016 which is the smaller date (also number)

Let fRemoveDate = 'left($1, Index($1, ''|'')-1)';
 // input: 68332|2016/12/12
 // out put: 68332

// custom function to calculate month difference, can be used in expression too
 SET fMonthDiff = Num(((year($2) * 12) + month($2)) - (((year($1) * 12) + month($1))));
 // to use in expression: =$(fMonthDiff(Today(), Today() + 65))

set fRoundToMinuteTime = Time(round(Frac($1),1/24/60),'h:mm');
