Pastes the result of a calculation into the current field in the current record.
See also 
Insert Calculated Result [Select; <table::field>; <value or formula>]
Select entire contents replaces the contents of a field. If you don't select this option, Insert Calculated Result replaces only the selected portion of the current field, or inserts the result at the insertion point. The default insertion point is at the end of the field's data.
Go to target field specifies the field to paste the calculated results into. The target field must be present on the layout to paste successfully. If no field is active when the script is performed, the step has no effect.
<value or formula> is the calculation whose results will be inserted by this script step.
