Title

Calculation field mystery

Post

Here is something I don't understand in creating a calculation field.  I hope one of you can explain it to me. 

 

Sometimes when I create a calculation the "Evaluate this calculation from the context of:" window at the top of the dialogue box shows "<unknown>".  This seems to create a problem with the calculation displaying immediately upon changing one of the values related to it.  I can't figure out what I'm doing to make the "<unknown>" happen sometimes but not others.  Consequently, I can't figure out how to change the "<unknown>" to a valid file name to fix the problem. I'm using Filemaker version 7
