I am trying to use custom fields to manage a project, but the main task is not showing values for the calculated fields.

I'm working on MS Project and decided to create some Custom Fields. I've created the following tasks:

TaskName         StartDate   EndDate   CalculatedStartDate    CalculatedEndDate
 + Main Task     10/8/15      14/8/15 
   - SubTask1    10/8/15      12/8/15    10/8/15               12/8/15
   - SubTask2    13/8/15      14/8/15    13/8/15               14/8/15

The CalculatedStartDate and the CalculatedEndDate, are not showing values for the Main Task.

The calculated fields are formulas. All the formulas I'm using are CustomField=[MS ProjectField]

For Example (Comienzo refers to StartDate. The MS Project Version I'm using is Spanish): enter image description here

After writing this question, I realized that I was missing a click on "Cálculo de las filas de asignación>>Usar Fórmula" on the image at the right.

After that, the error was gone.
