Tables Within Tables

Post by PeterC » Thu Oct 04, 2018 9:04 pm

The addition of “tables within tables” in SoftMaker Office 2018 is excellent, since it allows users to essentially create and use flat file lists very efficiently. In using “tables within tables” I’ve noticed one problem. When creating a new row (record), formulas are not inherited in the new row (record). For example, a field (column) creating a full name based on a concatenation of two other fields (columns), such as “=First Name & ” ” & Last Name” is nothing more than a blank field in a new record. The work around is to copy or fill down any formulas from an existing record (row). If my description of the issue is correct and I haven’t missed something, then I suggest the inheritance of formulas be made automatic as part of the “tables within tables” environment.

this works in MS Excel but not in PlanMaker. Formulas are not automatically inserted in new rows when you extend a table. I will refer this as a suggestion to the product management.
