Input formulas only work when the data card is modified, so it's not going to get set when the file is created. If you modify anything on the card then editbox2 should get it's appropriate value.
Link wasn't working so I just copied and pasted the info here:
The following applies for input formula fields in a PDMWorks Enterprise data cards (excerpt from the Administration Guide, chapter "Input formula":
• The input formula will only build up the evaluated string when values are manually entered (selected in lists, etc.) by a user in the data card.
• Updating linked properties inside a file will not trigger the input formula to evaluate.
• Using default values (e.g., value from folder data card) will not trigger the input formula to evaluate.
Even if I manually change something on the card it won't update.
Seems like your second reply is the answer- it won't update unless it's a value manually selected.
I guess I'll have to figure out another workaround....
Maybe EPDM should pay it's user's for developing it's software for them instead of the other way around.
I think I finally have a usable workaround.
I created 3 named lists in EPDM each with a single value.
DrrImpactList1 contains only one value "Clarification"
DrrImpactList2 contains only "Production Change"
DrrImpactList3 contains only "Design Change"
Then I added a ListBox control to the file card and set it to "Controlled by Variable".
I chose DRR_ImpactScore as the controlling variable and set it up as:
1 = DrrImpactList1
2 = DrrImpactList2
3 = DrrImpactList3
Not very pretty, but it works and it's searchable.
You can also use dispatch and trigger an action on add to read the value and assign the string to another variable.
