Newbie to FMP and I am struggling to figure out how to apply calculations to merge fields as I am not finding a calculation control (object) to place on my Layouts. I am creating a series of summarized reports that need uniquely strict formatting on much of the data, concatenations, etc - One example desired result is to place an "object" that displays a calculated result as follows "(" & Trim(Table:Field_A) & ")" . I have dozens of such formatting needs and really didn't want to "pollute" my tables with a bunch of calculated fields just to trim fields and concatenate text for use as merge fields on a series of reports. As a workaround, I've inserted Tab Controls just to get access to the Calculated Tab Labels - that works but dropping a tab for every calculation need can't be ideal. So my question is if there a way to apply a calculation directly to a merge field or is there a calculated display object that I am simply not seeing?
