Title

Auto-Enter Calculation not working...?

Post

     Using FMPA11

     I have a 'Donation Acknowledgement' field that I'm trying to default to the contact's first and last name, but can be overridden, for example if the Donor wishes to be anonymous, or donation is in a company name.

     So, I defined an auto-enter calculation:

     contacts::donationacknowledgement = contacts::full_name, (checked Do Not replace existing value...) which is in turn a Calculation field, result text, unstored, = contacts::firstname & " " & contacts::lastname

     starting a new record, the first name auto-populates into the Donation Acknowledgement field, but not the last, although the field contacts::full_name populates correctly

     is it possible that the first name populates, then because I've checked the Do Not Replace tag, having the first name prevents the last name from populating?

     further thought - DonAck only populates with the first entered of the two names.

     any ideas?
