The OLD and NEW psuedo tables only exist inside of Triggers. To pass 
those values to a function, you need to pass those fields individually 
as parameters.  This should be easy as every trigger is created uniquely 
per table and when you create the trigger you already know the columns 
on the table.

What exactly are you attempting to accomplish with your UDF? There may 
be easier ways to go about it.
