Field issue in Layout mode and Issue with Value List from field BUG?

Post

Hi, 

I'm having a strange problem with a new database that I'm building, I think it's a bug in Filemaker. The symptom that I'm seeing is that in layout mode one of my fields is not showing it's name when I draw it onto the layout I have called it "c_superItemIDName". It is defined as If ( SuperItem = "1" ; name ; " ") the name field has a brief description of the items. the "SuperItem" field is a check box. The "c_superitemIDName" calculation is set to results are text. I have a similar field that copies the Primary Key Id called "c_superItemID" It has a similar calculation  ( SuperItem = "1" ; __PK_ID_Record ; " ") calculation is a number. This field works correctly. 

I have a value list base on the "c_superItemID" calculation field with it displaying the "c_superitemIDName" field. This value list will only work if I do not display the "c_superitemIDName" as the display second field. What's going on?

Thanks!
