What is the difference between Auto-enter Calculation and a Calculation field concerning List function

Post

Hello, 

I have this Calculation field: PatternCount ( Substitute(List(Packages::PackageName); "¶"; ";") ; ";" )+1. The field is in a Payment table calculating how much commission a receptionist gets from selling promotion packages (the commission is based on the number of packages sold), which is stored in Package table. This works perfect. However, I tried using a Number field with Auto-enter Calculation using exactly the same formula, but it doesn't work. 

Could somebody tell me why? 

Thanks!
