Server script can't read calculation field based on external file

Question asked by NancyAdelman on Apr 26, 2012

Is it true that a server side script can't read the data in a calculation field if the calc references an external file?

 

I am using the replace function on an indexable field, replacing it with data from a calc field but no matter what is in the calc field, the indexed field is blank after the server script has run.

 

If a server side script can't read data from a calc fiield that references an external file, are there other ways to do this? (There are too many records to update to have this done as part of an open script for the users.

 

Thank you.
