creating and entering a calculation or summary field in Table view is a kludge
v10 and 11
Operating system version
Description of the issue
Creating and entering a calculation or summary field in Table view causes problems in both fmp10 and 11. It seems that the table brought up by the modify button in Table view does not contain a newly created field unless fmp is closed down and then opened up again. By pressing the + button a new field that has been created under "manage database" can now be added, but this only works for adding a single new field to a layout. For each new field added, fmp has to be booted afresh each time. It works but is a boor.
