      Editor’s Note: few names in the FileMaker community command as much respect and admiration as that of today's guest author, Darren Terry. This article is a distilled summary of Darren’s popular "Shaking the Dependency Tree" presentation.


      Excerpt: "FileMaker Pro has a very powerful calculation engine built into it. The calculation engine is exposed to us in a number of ways: calculation fields, script steps, conditional formatting, filtered portals, web viewers, chart objects, etc. But it can be a challenge to determine precisely when various kinds of calculations will refresh, and what causes them to refresh."
