Auto-enter in fields from external files

Hi,

 

I am working in Filemaker 9.

 

I have a contact database file where I auto-format the first and last name fields with the following auto-entry calculation:

 

TextFormatRemove(Proper( Substitute(TrimAll ( Self ; 1; 2 );¶;"")))

 

The do not replace existing value checkbox is not checked

 

It works fine when I am working within the file.

 

However, I used the contact table from this file in another fm database, and when entering information from that file the autoformat does not work.

 

Do auto-enter options not trigger when entering data through another file in filemaker 9?

 

 

Any help would be much appreciated,

 

Thank you.
