Replace Field Contents


I'm in a number field in Table View and want to Replace Field Contents in this field.  I did the following:

Sort the records in Table View by Journal::date in ascending order

Select Records Menu

Select Replace Field Contents...

Click Replace with calculated results and the Specify... button
In the Specify Calculation dialogue box that appears, I enter:

GetSummary ( summaryruntotal_amount ; Journal::date ) then click OK button then Replace
The number field that I was sitting in (at the first record of 1800 records) did not change at all and is still blank.
Any ideas why the Replace Field Contents did nothing?  I do this process once a year and it always works.  This year it does not.
I'm using FMPA 13.0v5 on Mac OS X 10.10.2  Thank you!
