FileMaker Advanced should allow step-throughs of calculation fields and custom functions. Currently this is available only for scripts. My functions can be quite complex, and it's a pain to debug them manually. Here's an example (and I'm not going to explain the symbols because that's not the point)

Let ( [cp_atTX = Specific_Heat ( TX_K; T0_K; T1_K; T2_K; T3_K; T4_K; cp_atT1; cp_atT2; cp_atT3; cp_atT4; n_max_vibration; T1_endpoint_K; T2_endpoint_K; T3_endpoint_K; T4_endpoint_K; nt; cp_i ) ] ;

Case

(

TX_K = Round(midpoint_T0_T1 ; 2) ; aggr_enthalpy_0_to_T0 + aggr_enthalpy_T0_to_midpoint_T0_T1 ;

I'd like to be able to step-through each line and be able to see the values of selected variables.

you can use the DataViewer and comment/uncomment lines with // symbol.

Additionally, you could also buy a keyboard with a carriage return key ;)

LOLz.

Who needs a carriage return?!

I formatted OP just for fun. Somehow seeing it all ordered and legible made it all the more horrifying.

It's a Cthalhulation, not a calculation.

Also, I wish for this feature as well.
