Hi Guys

 I have a field AllowanceAH computed Number

AllowanceCalc := @If(CountryAH ="Canada";CanHolAH;
                                                                          CountryAH= "United Kingdom";BritHolAH;
                                                                                                                                         CountryAH= "United States";USHolAH; "");

@If(CountryAH ="";0; CountryAH !="";AllowanceCalc ;AllowanceAH)

I need to be able to overide the values set by AllowaanceCalc

When I change them they reset

Same with this one
@If(CountryAH ="";0 ;CountryAH = "Canada":"United States";5;PersonalDays

Create agent to set the values like this

FIELD AllocanceAH = @TextToNumber(@prompt([okcanceledit]; "Title"; "Prompt"; "OverrideValue"));
""

But if the user opens the document and edits and resaves the document the computation will take over

Make three fields:
AllowanceCalcDefault -- replaces current AllowanceCalc (same field setup and formula)
AllowanceCalcOverride -- editable number
AllowanceCalc -- new field with the following formula:
@If(@IsError(AllowanceCalcOverride*1);AllowanceCalcDefault;AllowanceCalcOverride)

That's it!  Now, if user leavs AllowanceCalcOverride, it uses the default calculation. If teh user puts in a valid number in the override field, then that value wll be used instead.

Not really.  Just exactly what I specified... a field rename, a no-formula edit field, and a new field with the old name with the specified formula.
