Lookup value

Hi,

I have a field that’s a lookup field from another that is a calc field, because, sometimes, I need to change de calc result, and I couldn’t do it in the calc field, so I created a lookup field that gives me a result (changeable) from the other one.

The problem is that, almost every time the calc field is changed, the lookup field doesn’t sync with it… so I would have to “recalculate” it, making a find of that specific record so I recalc only that one (there are almost 65.000, and there’s a few that has been changed).

Attached, there’s a picture of the lookup. It works as it is, though not every time.

I’d appreciate some help.

A Lookup is only reevaluated when its local key field is modified or a Relookup is performed on it. A change in the related field (to be looked up) will not cause the Lookup to calculate. So, if this is your problem, you will need to script a method of performing the Relookup (or setting the key field to itself) once a value is changed which triggers a change in the calculation.

If this is not your issue, please post more information and a sample of your file structure.

Thanks for your help, Queue.

And that's the issue.

In the mean time, I figured a solution to my problem: I replaced the lookup field with set field and a global field (I hope this is clear to you). And it works. Is this a better solution than the one you gave?
