Field update rule does not work if the source is a formula?

Hi,

 

I am trying to use a workflow to update a Field, the source Field is a formula (referencing another object). The target Field is not being updated.

 

Field B  (Object Y) = Field A (object X)

When Field B is changed, updated Field C (object Z)

Object Y is junction object, in Master-Detail relationship with Object X and Z

 

I do not want to use a trigger.

 

Thanks for your help.

I think the problem is that you're trying to trigger off a Formula field, I don't think that can be done in a WFR.
