Placing a calculation directly on a layout


Is there any way to enter a calculation or calculated field directly on to a layout without first adding the calculated field to a table? I have a field on one of my tables that I would want to add to a report layout but I would want to modify the field on the layout by dividing by 270 i.e. "field name"/270. I know I can drag a calculated field from one of my tables to my layout but, for various reasons, it would be easier for me to modify my field directly on my layout with a calculation if this were possible in FMP. In looking at the various layout tools such as edit boxes, etc., there does not appear to be any tool that would allow you to modify an edit box by adding a calculation to a field and no place in the data tab of the inspector to do this either. Please let me know if there is any way to do this. Thanks.
