What are the pros and cons of using an unstored calculation versus an Auto Enter calculation in the field definition and Setup?


I have layout in a utility table PERIODS that is related to a table that contains ordering and cancelation date. I have several unstored calc fields in PERIODS that need to refresh often. The refresh process takes several seconds and I'm wondering if it would be faster to use an Auto Enter calculated value.


Are there benefits to using an unstored calculation versus the Auto Enter calculation?
