What do you mean by "post a contact name"?
I would not use an unstored calculation field for this unless very specific design requirements made it necessary.
I would either just include the field from the related table on my layout or I'd set up an auto-enter field option to copy over the name fromthe relatd table.
I'd use the first option if I want a change in the name in the related table to automatically update the name seen on the layout. I'd use the second option is I did not want that name to automatically update when such a change is made.
"Post" should be "populate" to field.
I think auto-enter field option is what I am looking for.
Thanks for the suggestions.
