Mac Works: Updating Calculated Fields in DB with Over 128 Fields

PSS ID Number: Q100022 Article last modified on 10-22-1998

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 3.0


In a Microsoft Works Database document, calculated fields created after the one-hundredth-twenty-eighth field created are not updated automatically.


To make a calculated field update correctly when information is entered in a cell affecting it, create the calculated field before the one-hundredth- twenty-eighth field created. It can then be moved anywhere else in the database and function correctly.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Works version 3.0. This problem no longer occurs in Microsoft Works version 4.0.
