Calculation fields with indexing

Product

Version

Filemaker Pro 11.0v2

Operating system version

Description of the issue

A calculation field that has indexing (any other choice besides "Do Not Store Calculation Results - Recalculate When Needed) does not update when the specifications change. The Calc is a Get (AccountName). When I log into to a different account, the field doesn't change. If I take off all indexing, I can't use it in a relationship. I need to use it in a relationship. Also, strangely, if I remove the calculation and leave it blank, the value that was previously there stays... even though there is no calculation anymore. Nothing is being referenced, yet there's a value, even after closing the file and reopening. I'm baffled at why.
