Calculation:Lookup vs Looked-up
Suppose I have a field in a table defined as a text field that can
use a relationship to another table. I want the field to be a
lookup value but to also have the ability to be changed by
If it is an "auto-enter field", how is defining it
as a "Calculated value" which uses the Lookup function
different that just defining it as an "auto-enter field"
which uses a "Looked-up value" ?
Thanks for your help. Countryboy1

Functionally, there isn't any difference. Both results can be modified after the fact. You could think of the "looked up value" option--which predates the calculated value option--as a limited version of an auto-enter by specified calculation setting.
