Last updated on JANUARY 18, 2024

Applies to:

Primavera Unifier Cloud Service - Version 20.11 and later
Primavera Unifier - Version 20.12 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : Unifier Any Version that has Advanced Formula Feature


When sending a record to the next step, a Data Element (DE) on the detail form that has an advanced formula does not update with the new value when a DE in the formula is updated on the upper form. 


When a DE in the upper form is updated and is part of an advanced formula in a DE in the detail form, the DE with the advanced formula on the detail form should update accordingly when record is sent to the next step.


  1. Log in to Unifier
  2. Navigate to the appropriate shell > appropriate Business Process (BP) that has a DE with an advanced formula in the detail form
  3. Open an existing record that has line items created and if necessary accept the task
  4. Update a DE on the upper form that is part of an advanced formula in a DE in the detail form
  5. Send record to next step
  6. Open record, go to detail form, and notice that the DE with the advanced formula does not show the new value based off of the update in the DE in the upper form.
