      How would you change references to a field in 120 calculations  to another in one go 'Whack'.

      Post

      In the olden days (FileMaker 6 and below) one often spoke of 'whacking the data file'. This expression referred to the process of opening the data file in BBEdit and doing a find and replace on all the file references so that the solution would work after renaming the files. I'm thinking of trying this out to change the field reference within a calculation. Does anyone know...

       

      1. If this will work in the relational environment of FMP 9,10 and 11 for field references within Calculations?

       

      2. If yes, is it acceptable practice?

       

      3. If not, why?
