I have several formula text fields that I concatenate and use in another formula text field. The final formula text field is set to be editable so users can slightly modify the final text before committing to the database. It's all very "real-time" dynamic as users are entering information in drop downs, these concatenate and then get pushed into the final editable field.
In order for this to work, it appears I need to display the formula text fields on the form. Not horrible, I put them on the bottom and my users can ignore them. But, wondering if there is a setting I'm missing that once set, I can remove these from the form.
