SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This may be a bit of a best practices question, but today I made a few changes to the site/lists I'm developing to facilitate development and data rendering.

  1. In CEWPs I've begun using .aspx files instead of plain .txt files to link scripts since SPD recognizes them and applies formatting assistance. Haven't found any reason that this shouldn't be done, or whether there is benefit to pure .txt files in the links. Is there any reason this should not be done?

  2. I was under the impression that calculated cells cannot be used in a look-up, however today I found that if the data type is set to single line of text you can use them in a look-up. In these instances I've taken the end result and formatted the text to currency on page load. I assume that with proper validation this shouldn't cause problems, but again being new to SharePoint would solicit feedback to validate this.

Thank you in advance.
