[SOLVED] COMPUTE FIELD IN DESIGNER

I was wondering if New Calculation will only create a DEFINE not a COMPUTE? I just tried on our Sandbox 8206 and it won't create a COMPUTE field. Any ideas?

I experienced the same as you I have sent this post to product management. Not sure how quick I will get a reply so you may want to open a case with techsupport.

I got a quick reply on how to do this. Once you create the first calculated field (DEFINE) and drag it into the query in one of the buckets then right mouse click on that and choose New Calculation and it will add another field that will be a COMPUTE the check box is automatically checked. You can then remove the DEFINEed field from the bucket. I personally think it is a bit clumsy to do it this way but at least you can get it done.
