  Sample input:
RefreshCalc ( Items::ModTime , Sum(Items::LineTotal))
  Sample output:
$10

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Use this when FMP calcs do not refresh when related values are changed.

This CF requires a ModTime (Time Result - auto-enter Modification Time) in the related record.

I have not tested it in every scenario, but it has worked in all the scenarios I have encountered.
