Title

Opening Files and bypassing calculations

Post

Is there a way of opening a FileMaker file without it computing the calculations?

 

FileMaker begins in a recursive loop the moment it opens. I need to delete one of the calculations attached to a variable. For some reason the formula was not detected as recursive, but a never ending spinning circle began when I saved the formula.

 

The formula simply accesses for reference (not alterations) a prior index of the repeating field undergoing the calculations (using the [ ] method of accessing the index).

 

Many thanks
