enCan a field calculate its own data based on data in other fields?

<p>Yes. QuickBase supports formula fields. The value of a formula field in a particular record is calculated from the value of other fields in the record.</p>
<p>There are many types of formulas. A numeric formula results in a numeric value and uses numeric operations and functions. You can also create text formulas, check box formulas, date formulas, and URL formulas.</p>
<p>Example 1: This numeric formula creates a "diameter" field that calculates its value as:</p>
<p> [radius]*2 </p>
<p>Note: The square brackets are used to specify that the value of the field named "radius" should be used.</p>
<p>Example 2: This numeric formula calculates the number of weeks remaining until something is due:</p>
<p> ToWeeks([Date Due] - Today())</p>
<p>Example 3: This text formula creates a "full name" field:</p>
<p> [First Name] & " " & [Last Name]</p>
<p>Example 4: This text formula displays a message about overdue status:</p>
<p> If(ToWeeks([Date Due] - Today()) < 0, "Overdue", "Okay")</p>
