    Host-Client environment calculation field



      Host-Client environment calculation field


           We use FMPV11 mutiple systems configuration.  One host and multiple clients by "open remote".  Which system does the calculation field calculation for display when the calculation field will be displayed on the clients.  Host calculates the field and pass the result to client or host pass all necessary data to client and client calculate it?

               Is the Calculation field Stored or Unstored?

               WIth unstored, this will happen on the client, I believe. Not sure about stored, but since the value is not recalculated in a stored calculation unless one of th referenced fields are changed, it shouldn't really matter which machine does the actual calculatoin as the result is then stored on the server.
