'force' calculation to update

My bid app is running with my fields split up into separate tables to help organize things. I have my 'Totals' (Creating final cost) on its own table, with everything (besides Bid ID, ID, and Rates (3 fields)) as Unstored Calculations.


I will make changes on a separate, but related, table (Such as, add equipment or add a worker), but the calculations to not update automatically. They do update if I click on any calculation field that is displaying. I tried (probably stupidly) having a script to update a text field of "refresh" hoping it would update the calculation fields.


Equipment, Accessories, Workers, Credits and Other Expenses use portals to add those parts onto bids- and they do work with all the calculations. But the changes do not force any updates of Totals calculation fields.
