BUG: Infinite loop with Name formulas

If
[Type 1].Name is a formula that references [Related Type 2].Name, and
[Related Type 2].Name is a formula that references [Type 1].Name,
you get an infinite loop with ever-growing Names :flushed:

This may also be true for other formula fields – I only tested Name formulas.

Yeah, I’ve discovered a few ways (by accident) to get stuck in infinite loops :confused:
I think that the Fibery team know the possibility exists (and that they plan to fix):

Similar things can happen in Coda, and I’ve had occasions where the only fix was to delete the table :frowning:

We will fix that problem in the nearest future. If loop is detected, following formula calculation will be stopped.
