      Auto-Enter Value From Calculation Is Not Triggered When Creating Records Through A Portal

      Post

      In it's simplest form I have two tables

       

      Table 1) EVENTS

      Table 2) DATE_TIME that allows for the event to cover multiple dates and times

       

      There is a field LEAD MANAGER in the EVENTS table

      The Auto-Enter field is within the DATE_TIME table in a field called MANAGER.  It is a simple calculation (=Events::Lead Manager).  The purpose is to reduce data entry.  The lead manager is the default unless the user assigns a different manager from a drop-down list.

       

      The DATE_TIME records are created through a portal from EVENTS

       

      The problem is the auto-enter value does not trigger when I create a DATE_TIME record through the portal.  It will, however, trigger when I create the record thrugh the portal, delete that record, then recreate it.

       

      Thoughts why this occurs?
