We are a manufacturing plant and I created a Filemaker application to create production form.

I have the final product in a table and a raw materials table.


I Create a portal with calculation to know the receipe or the breakdown of products to be create on the production line.

So example, my product is a Chocolate cake, I have the breakdown of materials so:

Egg  3

Cacao 200ml

Flour 500g



So my calculation is like

3 cakes:

Egg  9

Cacao 600ml

Flour 1500g



Everything work well, but, when i have to create the same products for an other time the calculation stop to work and replace the numbers by the previous products made.


There is a way to create a calculation independent per record?


Thank you
