how to refresh a layout?


Hi guys,

I am fairly new to filemaker and (amongs others ;-)) have the following issue:

from a base layout (let's call it Layout A) I switch to another layout "B" which gets its data from different tables based on a number of relational links between those tables. If I now change an input cell either in layout B or in layout A, some fields of layout B are updated instantly, whereas others (mainly those who are subject to caculations) are not. The only workaround is to always manually go to the menu (or use the keyboard shortcut) for a manual refresh. I tried to get over it by simply adding another line to the script which brings up the window like "refresh window" (sorry I don't know the english script language as my version is in German) but it doesn't work out.

Does anybody have an idea how this can be solved?

many thanks in advance
