If the calculationMode parameter is set to Manual, is it possible to use it to break the dependency logic loop between two calculations referencing each other?

No. A calculation can't refer to a field that refers to the calculation, manual mode or no. There are good reasons for that, and I can't see them ever changing.

There are often ways to get around a dependency loop. If you let un know what you are trying to do and why, we may be able to achieve the same result.

Thanks. Have an alternative method and agree that this type of logic/flow is not something that should be incorporated into the design if possible.
