Displaying Calculated Values
Is there a way to display a calculated value on screen without storing the values on any layouts.
Layouts do not store values. Tables do.
Calculation fields can be set to be unstored. In which case they compute a value "when needed" such as when the field is displayed on a layout or referenced in a calculation.
In fileMaker 11, it's also possible to set up a variable in a merge text block that uses a conditional format expression to assign it a calculated value without needing to define a field to do so.
