Using Today formula in date field has limitations

Hi. I just wanted to find out if perhaps the =today() function does not work when using a sheet with begin and end dates and dependencies enabled. When I try to enter the function, it only shows the actual function statement and not today's date. However when I use this function on a sheet with only one due date column and dependencies are not enabled, the TODAY function works fine.
