PeopleCode Events: FieldFormula

The PeopleCode Event FieldFormula can get triggered in many different contexts and can execute the PeopleCode on every field on each row in the Component Buffer.

As this can degrade the performance of the system considerably, this event is hardly used. This event was used to perform basic calculations. PeopleSoft recommends to use RowInit and FieldChange instead of FieldFormula.

As a general practice, shared functions in FUNCLIB function libraries are written within the FieldFormula event.

As in the case of FieldDefault Event, the setting of a value using the FieldFormula does not mark the row as changed and such rows are not written to the database during save.

This event is associated only with record fields.
