It could be related to the application you're using to display the files.
It sounds like this is some sort of custom application, and not Adobe
Reader or Acrobat. So it could be that this application doesn't support the
Another option could be that since you're populating the fields from a
database, the calculation scripts are not triggered.
To do that you could try embedding a piece of code in the document that
will force it to refresh the calculations when it's opened.
The code to use is:
this.calculateNow();...........Does this go into the PDF or my MVC program? If the PDF where? Is there a place in the PDF that acts like a Page_Load routine?
The PDF. You embed it as a document-level script via Advanced - Document
Make sure it's not in a function, though...
