    Calc vs AutoEnterCalc + No-mod Option


      Generally for calc fields I make them standard calc fields.


      But I have been wondering - where does auto-enter + prohibit modification fit in?


      For the sake of discussion let's use something really simple like Extended Price


      UnitPrice x Qty


      Would there be any benefit from setting this up instead as an Auto-enter calc using the "prohibit modfication" option.


      One benefit I see for the straight-calc method is that if you ever decide you need to change the calc expression, then all values will be automatically calculated when you exit define Field.


      What is the use case for auto-enter + prohibit modification?
