I am using the timesheet template that is available to me via Livecycle 8.0.  It is a basic weekly timesheet that allows the individual to enter time across the days of the week.  The form has a calculated total field for each line (which totals up the hours on each line).  When I go into the script editor I can see that these total fields are setup as 'Calculate', 'Sum(Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri)', 'Language: FormCalc', 'Run At: Client'.

When a user opens up the form with Adobe Reader to enter time the total fields are not calculated.  Although they enter hours into the columns for Mon, Tues etc, the total column does not calculate.  However, if I open the form via Adobe Acrobat and enter hours the total field is calculated and displayed.

Why is this?  Can I not get the total calculated fields to calc/display when people fill out the timesheet?

Both forms you sent work for me in Reader 9.3.0. I did notice warnings being thrown on the signature fields, specifically the warning regarding the target Reader version.

The form is configured to use Reader 7.0.5 or later as the target version.

I would be suspicious of this.

1) Are you using Reader 7 or 8 for testing?

2) Do you need to support Reader 7?

Signature fields are particularly sensitive to versions and ongoing security enhancements.
