Global Fields and computed values

Question asked by tnfink on Nov 28, 2012
Latest reply on Dec 26, 2012 by lhallberg

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!
