Are different type of calculations handled better than others by FileMaker and it resource management? What I mean is that when I was newer to FileMaker the volunteer community leader gave the good advice that you don’t want to have a large number of un-stored calculation on a layout. It seems like calculations like Sum () and one that use simple math are less demanding than something like an ExecuteSQL statement. This makes sense if so. I am wondering about this when I am building solutions do I need to choose a way to calculate that get the job done best or if I should be conscious of power and processing. Thanks
