doing something wrong, but can't see it


Can you help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?  I just can't see it.


I can't get this concatenated text field, name_first_and_last, to show any data:


name_first text
name_last text indexed
name_first_and_last text Auto-enter Calculation replaces existing value

Here is the calculation:

name_first & " " &  name_last

Evaluate this calcuation from the context of INCOME
Current Table ( "INCOME" )
Do not evaluate if all reference fields are empty is checked


name_first and name_last show up correctly in my layout, but name_first_and_last is empty -- though I can type text into it.


How can I make it automatically populate with the concatenation of the first and last names?  THANKS!
