How to update calculated field when the field is added to existing table?
I created a table with three fields.
One of the fields is Date Received.
I take that field to look up in another table to get a Date Due based on the number of work days.
I added the Date Due field that is filled in from the other table.
It works when I add a new record, but not for existing records.

Try this:  Open manage database, locate the calculation, click Storage Options and click the "Do not store calculation results...".
