If you have a calculated attribute and for some reason the value becomes too large you may see the error:  Calculated attribute exceeds the system defined constraints.

The related fields then become un-editable and cannot be fixed.

To allow the associated fields to be edited so the value will calculate correctly

  • Go to the specific object and calculated attribute
  • Copy the current formula so you can put it back when done
  • Use the formula Absolute with a constant = 1
    • Generate it.  You may have to remove the original formula first if it repopulate
  • Validate and Save and Return
  • Go to the page with the bad value.
  • You should now be able to edit the fields as the calculation now = 1
  • Once you enter the correct amounts
  • Go back to the Object attribute and change the formula back, Validate Save and Return
