Global fields in a hosted application

I have a global field used in a relationship.  I have it defined as a calc field, always resulting in "Main", like this:

The relationship which uses this field as a match field works fine locally, but not when the file is hosted remotely (even though data viewer tells me that the value is set correctly).  Obviously this is my mistake, and it's easily rectified by changing the field to a text field and setting the value separately at startup, but I'm keen to know what I've done wrong.

 

In case it's relevant, this a data-separated app, with GUI and DATA files.  The match field is in DATA.  And I'm using FMPA14 (Windows).

 

Thanks,

 

Dave.
