Manual override

I have some calculation fields that depend on data entered in other fields to calculate and display the result as a number. I want the user to be able to override that data, or to be able to insert a value into that field if the calculation has not been made (field is empty). I have tried mightily to achieve that aim but failed. I am using FM8 Advanced. Help please!!

I would suggest having another field and include that field in the calculation.

For instance, I have Fall Salary + Winter Salary + Spring Salary + Summer Salary = c_total_salary....

but for Tenured faculty, they don't work quarters, so I added (at the suggestion from this helpful forum) a field called Tenured_Salary

and now c_total_salary = Fall_Salary + Winter_Salary + Spring_Salary + Summer_Salary + Tenured_salary

My case is a "either or case" in business practice... I hope that helps
