Since we see no code to comment on, it's really going to be hard to
comment, especially the code that works between EF 1 and 2.

Offhand, I'll have to suggest that it looks like whatever routine
updates EF 1, is NOT updating EF 2, which means either directly changing
the value in EF 2, or sending a message to EF 2 to update it's value, if
it has code to reflect EF 1's value, and it isn't being notified
somehow.  You don't show if this ADO, BDE, SQL, etc, so it's going to be
a really hard call to mind read you. Sorry, best I can do with the info
I have.

On the same Form Page I have a primary calculated Entryfield and also a second different named Entryfield. I calculate a value for the 1st Ef and coding is provided for the 1st Ef value to also appear in the 2nd Ef.

When I run the program using a different set of variables the correct value appears in the 1st Ef but the previous result still appears in the 2nd Ef. The only way to get a correct 2nd Ef is to close out the program entirely, reload the Program and run it again.
