Topic: Formulas in my PDF template don't work?

I've got a slight problem with a PDF template.
The template consists of various fields, some of which have formulas behind them to calculate field values.

When I populate the template with an FDF data source they execute fine and the values are populated in the new PDF.

I'm currently evaluating a third party component to integrate into our doc producer called CutePDF. (From the looks of things it seems quite a popular choice.)

When I pass some xFDF to the CutePDF object though, the new PDF that is created doesn't display any data in the fields that are calculated by formulas.

Any ideas why this could be happening?
