Adding data to a Calculation Field

I have a few fields that get data from one field and place it into many fields. The one field in the related DB has several codes for different services provided to special education students. I am sorting those codes into different fields in the second data base

Example: If(Students_data::SpEd_Label="SLD","1","")

Everything works well, I get a "1" in the field where I want it, BUT how can people add information into the calculated field. Of course right now I get a message the field is not modifiable.

Is there a way in FMP 6?

If you want to be able to edit a field, you can't define the field as a calculation. You'll probably want to do one of two things:

1. Make the field a normal field and then choose auto-enter calculated value in the field options

2. Use a script with set field to insert a calculated value into the field.
