      Thank you for the reply Maximus - Much appreciated.
      And again - sorry for the simple questions, but there is no knowledge documents found anywhere to learn this stuff :/

        Sorry to say that the addressStreet = 'test' Didnt work :/ tired addressStreet = 'test'; - tried addressStreet = "test" and also addressStreet = '"test"; --> none of these systex variation worked - the field value stays on none (or on the value it was set before if set) and does not change with the formula code as expected.
        Any advice would be appreciated (im working on the trail server from espocrm itself)

            Hi,

            For existing contacts you can do "Recalculate formula" with selecting the contact records that you want to update.

              Here is the formula documentation https://github.com/espocrm/documenta...ion/formula.md.
