    I was doing some text field calculations on ArcGIS Pro 2.2.0 and my expression was valid and I received a 'Calculate Field Completed Successfully'. However, in the attribute table I can clearly see that the new values did not update.

     

    Finally it occurred to me to check the field length set on my table. When the expression length exceeds the length of the field it says it's completed successfully, but it does not actually override in information in the table.
