1 button to effect all layouts?

Post

     Let's say I have a table with 3 fields and 2 layouts.

     If a button inserts a calculated result into field #3, does field #3 have to exist on the same layout as the button?

     In other words, Is there a way to place field #3 on layout B and still be able to manipulate / reference its contents (within the same record) from layout A?

     I'd rather avoid field stacking.

     I was under the impression I could reference data within a record regardless of what layout is being viewed.  Is there a check box I'm not seeing that restricts the influence of buttons to their native layout?

     The same question extends to conditional formatting and script triggers.
