I've not found any difference myself in A2007 reports running on a Win 7 or XP Pro workstation.

A2007 introduced a confusing new view to add to Design View and Print Preview called Report View - which does NOT show the actual contents of a report as you see it when in Print Preview. On one occasion I spent a morning trying to find a fault where I could not understand why VBA code in the report was not running - only to find that A2007's Report View, amongst other things, does not fire any of the report's events. This is a 'feature' I could do without.

Anyway, could you confirm that the calculated values are missing from the print preview or printed out views, and not the report view? If they are, could you post what the control source for these controls is so we can see what goes into them?
