    The "Wait for input before including the field in calculation" option in the calculation has been removed, so the result is automatically shown. I am sorry to say that I find no way to stop this considering that the Current Date and Days are also filled when the form is loaded.

    I managed to solve this by removing the formula from the Age field and using a conditional logic to complete the formula in the Age field when the Date of birth field is completed.
