[FM Weetbicks] Solving Circular References in Auto Enter Calculations

Hi there!

In this article we talk about an age old situation in FileMaker where two Auto-Enter calculations reference one another. We explain the order of execution and why this never leads to a desired result. We then show a cool solution to this issue such that you can build circular references that work the way you want them to.

Example file included as always.

Check out the article here!

Thanks for reading!




Great article, as always! I know we've had to solve this problem before. I don't remember how we did it, but it wasn't exactly like this. Wish I could remember which project(s?) that was… Ha!
