I'm trying to set up a field in the header of a layout that displays the current account name. I've tried it by creating a field in the table that the layout is for and setting it to calculate 'Get (AccountName)' and I've also tried just setting it to Auto-enter and checked 'modification' then selected account name from the dropdown. Either way, the value displayed in the browse mode doesn't get updated until the current user has modified a field or changed views. Is there a way to make the displayed name refresh the instant a new user logs in? Right now, I can switch users but the value shown in the field makes it seem like I'm still logged in as the last user, until I modify a field or change views/modes.
