Auto-Recognition of Type of Calculation Result

    When you enter the calculation for a calculation field, FileMaker defaults the calculation result type to Number. I'd prefer a preset of Text or, even better, an auto-recognition by analyzing the entered calculation.

    • If I enter MyField & "$", FileMaker should recognize, the result will be Text.
    • If I enter Get( CurrentDate ) + 7, FIleMaker should recognize, the result will be Date.
