Auto refresh of a field

BL Splash

Recommended Posts

I have an age field that looks at another date of birth field to display the age.


I was just looking at some of the records and a few have had a birthday have come and gone and the field doesn't update itself.


Is there a way to do that? I thought I had seen a script for it, but can you run a script in a calc field?


Any help would be very greatful.

Function Today is recalculated when the host closes and reopens the file.




If your db may not be closed and reopened once a day at least, you might opt for the Insert Calculated script step.




Here's the calc field definition for age (or calculation to be inserted):




NumToText(Year(Today) - Year(DateOfBirth) - Case(Today< Date(Month(DateOfBirth), Day(DateOfBirth), Year(Today)), 1))
