Report fields don't display calculated values until the user clicks where they should appear

Using Access 2010, we have a report that doesn't display calculated values until the user clicks where they should appear.

I've never seen this before.  Does anyone have a solution for this crazy behavior?

How are you opening the report?  Try using the acViewPreview instead of acViewReport.

Try Dale's suggestion first.
Calculated Fields have always shown up for me in either view...
...'Unless you are really doing your calculation in VBA...?

How complex are these calculations?
Try instead creating your calculations in a Query/the form's recordsource:
for example
SELECT f1,f2, Price*Quantity as TotalPrice
FROM YourTable

This turned out to be some kind of memory issue.  I asked the user to restart her computer and the problem went away.
