Title

Why does global calculation not retrieve a related value?

Post

2 files in a example solution:

 

'Related':

 numeric field used for relation

 text field with name

 

'globals' which should make some values available to other tables in the solution, as simple as possible.

 global number used as key in relation.

 global calculated field based on this relation.

 

no other fields or records in this globals table.

 

*) The calculated field remains empty. I can't find the rule why. It is updated when the storage is don't-store ; but then it is not available in other tables.

 

*) When there are no records in the globals table, a related::name field on the layout for globals displays OK but I can't edit the  field . Is that logical?
