Calculation field in a portal
I have a calculation field in a portal that comes from another table. It does not show up unless I click in the field. Is there any reason it does not show up when I am in the record as the other fields do?
Check the result type specified for it in the Specify Calculation dialog box. If this produces a text result, but you've specified a number result, this type of behavior can happen.
Other issues can also be involved but that's the most common issue.
