I'm trying to use "Computed Fields" for a content type "Loan". There are a number of charges associated with a loan that are categorized and summed, which then roll up to a "Total Charges" field. As an example, you have:
Items Payable (6) Application Fee (2) Appraisal Fee (3) Title Charges (7) Title Insurance (4) Title Examination (5) Total Charges (8)
As part of the implementation, "Items Payable"=("Application Fee" + "Appraisal Fee"), "Title Charges"=("Title Insurance" + "Title Examination") and "Total Charges"=("Items Payable" + "Title Charges"). Items Payable, Title Charges and Total Charges are all field type "Computed", while the others are "Float".
When I save the content type and go to add "Loan" content, I input "Application Fee", "Appraisal Fee", "Title Insurance" and "Title Examination". When I save the content, Items Payable and Title Charges are summed correctly, but "Total Charges" remains at "0". In order to get Total Charges computed, I have to go back and re-save the content a second time. After that pass, the numbers are all calculated correctly.
As I understand, in order to get the correct order of calculations, I need to define the 'order of calculations' using the "Weight" column. I've gone back and done so using the numbers in the parentheses, but keep getting the same result.
