How to define IPv4 and/or IPv6 number formats?

Post

Greetings.  I have an issue similar to one described here: http://fm.lithium.com/fm/board/message?board.id=FM-en-4&message.id=8536&query.id=133068#M8536 except that I would really like to list all four subsets of the ip address.

 

10.0.96.1

10.0.96.2

 

etc.

 

I am currently using FM 8.02 Advanced.  Does version 10 have a way to custom define a number format?  I would rather not use my very limited budget to upgrade but given how much we use ip address to identify machines, people and classes of use ....

 

I am also relatively inexperienced in FM for all that I have used it for years.  I can do really basic scripts and calculations but I am not very sophisticated.  I read some of the responses to the above message and while I sort of understand the theory, when I read the specifics, I kind of lose the connection.  My current work around will probably be to break apart the sets of numbers in a spreadsheet and import those, then write a calculation to create a display field for the whole address.

 

Thanks.

 

Thanks.
