Dear All,


Had a doubt about "Calculated Value" and "Calculation", Here below I explained clearly.



Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 5.36.07 AM.png

In this Image1, I select the field datatype as "Text" & select "Option", then in "Auto Enter" tab i select "Calculated Value", give input as,

Application = Get ( ApplicationVersion )




In this image2, I select the datatype as "Calcuation" directly, and give input as,

Application = Get ( ApplicationVersion )

So What is the differenece between these datatypes ( Image1 & Image2 ) !! Will both give the same result?

If it is same means why they designed like this?

Bit confused!!


If the question does not make sense or confuse anywhere, please notify me!


Thanks in Advance,
