Allow entry calculation field

Recommended Posts

This is a FMP6 problem.

I have a calculation field that returns a grade A to E based on other fields.

I need to be able to allow a user to over-ride the calculated grade if they wish.

Is this possible with a calculation field...or can anyone suggest how I can do this.

Cheers

Stephen

Hi

don't use a calculation field, but a field with option to AutoEnter a calculated value.

That field will be not as flexible as in FileMaker 7, but you can try this way.

I think you will need another field that will store the overriding data. Then you can take the non enterable calc field and overlap it with the override field.

The calc would have to be slightly modified

Case ( not IsEmpty ( override ); override; your current calc criteria )
