How do I get it to only calculate once??

Post

I have a calculation that produces a random string that I would like to use to make a generic password but it constantly changes everytime you leave the record. is there a way to have this only calculate once? It works very well except that I would like to store the calculation once it is produced.

 

If( number ;

Choose ( Round( Random * 68 ; 0 ) ;

"0";"1";"2";"3";"4";"5";"6";"7";"8";"9";
"A";"B";"C";"D";"E";"F";"G";"H";"J";
"K";"L";"M";"N";"P";"Q";"R";"S";"T";
"U";"V";"W";"X";"Y";"Z";"a";"b";"c";"d";
"e";"f";"g";"h";"j";"k";"l";"m";"n";
"o";"p";"q";"r";"s";"t";"u";"v";"w";"x";
"y";"z";"0";"1";"2";"3";"4";"5";"6";"7";"8";"9";

) & JWRandom(number - 1 ) ;
""
)
