What causes the "Calculate on Exit" FormField function to stop working?

I have a Word 2007 document controlled by a lot of VBA including FormFields making use of the "Calculate on Exit" function.  "Calculate on Exit" worked as expected.  I then copied the document and made extensive changes to the VBA.  The changes to the VBA worked properly but somewhere along the way, "Calculate on Exit" stopped working throughout the document.  I rolled back the VBA changes but the problem didn't go away.  I then changed the Word 2007 options in the after version of the document to match the before version and the problem still didn't go away.

I am now stumped.  Does anyone have any ideas?  I suspect that I am missing something obvious.

Trying to roll all the changes forward starting with the working document to the current state of the project would be a HUGE amount of work.  Help!

It sounds as if the document might be corrupt. Try copying and pasting it to a new blank document.

Have you also tried deleting the formfield entirely and recreating it... the one you're having the problem with... or is it ALL formfields that won't calculate on exit?

Are the macros that are running on exit named the same?  Perhaps they got renamed or mistyped somehow?
