Auto-enter trigger

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I need a technique to trigger a single-field that has an auto-enter calculation with any field shown in a portal.

The single field auto-enters itself with field-data that's in the related portal. (Aggregate/List function). I am summing the text from the portal in one field.

Each time one of the portal fields is changed the single-field has to refresh itself with data from the portal.

I know how the trigger an auto-enter single field with another field in the same record but I don't know how to auto-enter a single field triggered from multiple related fields.

Is this possible

Henk

Make it an unstored calculation field instead of an auto-enter?

No, and for a good reason. But I am afraid I must refer you to a quite a lot of reading for that:

Thanks again Veteran.

Read it all

No need to try for me anymore now.

I am looking for another solution now.

I am only looking for a way now to delay an auto-enter calculation. (recursive wait for another auto-enter in a different field maybe)

Yes, I have read that, and didn't understand it either. It seems to me you are asking how to swim across a river - instead of asking how to get to the city on the other side (there's a bridge).

Why not use interface to solve the problem: the user runs a script to go to a different layout to edit the portals. Another script return them to the original layout, and updates field.
