Column-to-column referring in a Notes view

Hi guys

Today I found out a new thing regarding Notes views :-)
It is ridiculous :-) I couldn't even imagine that I do not know something about Notes views.
The funny thing about it is that it is clearly described in a Notes help but I had never knew it and never seen that someone else used this.

When I investigated this problem I decided to read standard documentation regarding programmatic column name and I found out there that it is possible to use a value from one column in another column via referring to its programmatic name.

Did you know that?

See the following screen shot:



I think it may have a sense in a context of performance.
Sometimes you may have several columns which are dependent on the same condition and it seems reasonable to compute it once in a hidden column and then use its value in other columns without doing the same job many times.
