When you work with FileMaker for so lang there are features which are so ‘normal’ in day-to-day use.
As far as I know summary fields are recalculated when there visible on the layout?
Now, out of the blue I have a table where when data is changed the (hidden) summary fields are all of a sudden recalculated! Not just one field, but all fields in the table.
The records for the table are shown in a portal, but none of the summary fields is visible. I have opened an older version of the database, but there this problem doesn’t happen.
The customer is not happy… every changed causes the 20.000 + records to be recalculated over and over again.
To be honest… strange things are happening with FileMaker 16. I still not sure I happy with this version.
