Disabled auto-enter calculation still evaluated


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6

Description of the issue

I have a field that was once defined with an auto-enter calculation. This calc has been disabled, but still, when one of the field used in this calc is modified, FileMaker takes ages (minutes!) to validate the entry.
Thanks to Inspector, I found that the field I was trying to modify was used in this disabled calc, so I removed it completely and it works fine.
A disabled calculation should never ever ever interfere.
