How to get a field to be evaluated constantly.


I have a discount field where I can imput different percentages for whole invoices. The problem is, however, that I can't get the discount total field to recalculate automatically when I change something on the invoice.

The calculation reads:

Subtotal *  Discount

and the "Do not evaluate if all referenced fields are empty" box is checked

and the Do Not Replace Existing Value Box is UNchecked.

I have a tax checkbox that evaluates MA state sales tax and it recalculates every time something on the invoice changes.

The taxation calculation is the following:

If ( Taxable = "Yes" and Subtotal ; (Subtotal - Discount_Total) * .0625 ; 0  )

^^I did not write this, PhilModJunk did to help me, so I don't understand what exactly it does so that I would be able to use it for the Discount field.
