Calculation Field....lost the plot


I'm new to FM but have some experience on Access.

My problem seems simple enough: I have a field for DOB in the database and want to have Age displayed on the form. The calc is easy enough; seen several on the forum but I can't figure out whether I need a Calculation Field or just a Text box with a Calc assign. I see no reason for an Age field in the DB, it should just make the calc dynamically as I go through the various records. Have I lost the plot here?

If it matters, I'm using FM11 on a Windows platform but will deploy to a Mac environment.


Appreciate any assistance
