Check the bindings on the form that your user is filling out. They should be set to normal if you are not using a data schema or should be set to a node in the schema if you are using a data schema.

thanks for the reply paul.

the fields are part of a table which gets the values for some columns fron an xml file and 2 seprate fields need to be filled by the user.

The form is editable after being passed through Reader Extensions.

But the values that are filled by the user disappear after the form is saved and reopened.

Kindly advise

Thanks in advance

In the data file that is created are their nodes present in the xml that represent those two fields?

I will need to look at the form and data ...can you post it somewhere so I can get it? Or if you post your email I will send you a message where you can email it to me.

thanks paul

but we dropped the implementation.

Now we are trying to use the forms api.

Thanks once again.
