You can achieve the same result with no changes to IBO by implementing
the task as a set of stored procedures. One stored procedure returns
the result set you want to work with - including the additional fields
you want to work with. Another procedure provides edit capability
over those fields - and the stored procedure does the work on the

Provided the result set you are working with is relatively small (so
that refreshes can be done quickly if/when required) this works quite

As to whether allowing edit of calculated fields is an "easy" change I
will eventually be able to let you know - as I am working on a project
in which I am going to be attempting exactly that (but in a much more
complex situation).
