Formula lost from cell and only value retained  Excel 2010

I have at least to cells, formated as currency , locked and hidden.  Each has a formula that produces a correct value.  On save and re-load the formula is gone and only the value (still the originally correct one) is in the cell.  Any ideas on what causes this and how to prevent?

cell 1 formula:  =ROUND(IF(DHSConversionRateOKed,MAX((dhsEWBudgetCapConversion),(DailyNFRate*365/12)-VLOOKUP(IF(ISBLANK(CLServiceDate),TODAY(),CLServiceDate),MedicaidMaintReq,2,TRUE)),MIN((dhsEWBudgetCapConversion),(DailyNFRate*365/12)-VLOOKUP(IF(ISBLANK(CLServiceDate),TODAY(),CLServiceDate),MedicaidMaintReq,2,TRUE))),2)

Cell 2 Formula: =ROUND(xlsProposedCLRateAdjustedforDaysAbsent,2)

Precedents are ok;  These had been control sources for form text boxes, though other cells that are control sources and had formulas did not loose their formulas

Are they still used as controlsources for textboxes on any forms? That can cause the behaviour you describe.

The contols were locked so could not change, but guessing this might be the problem, I used the initialize event to set the values instead of being a control source,  This seems to have fixed the issue so far.

As a general rule of thumb, I recommend not binding any controls to cells directly.

I determined my solution before the expert and mine is more specific on what the problem is and a work-around.
