Global Fields and computed values

Question asked by tnfink on Nov 28, 2012

I encountered a (at least for myself) surprising behavior:


I have a table called Project with a global field called ReportYear.

I have a table called Employee with a computed global field also called ReportYear. The computation just copies the value from Project.ReportYear.


The motivation for this is that I use the value in ReportYear to define relations used for reports.


What surprises me is that

- a change in Project.Reportyear

- does not cange the value in Employee.ReportYear



It seems that the value in Employee.ReportYear is computed only once when initiating the session. There seems to be no automatic updates.


Can anybody confirm this assumption?


If yes, Is there a way to update the computation?


Thanks for any help!
