I have a LiveCycle form in which certain form fields are hidden by default. A radio button allows them to be made visible so the user can fill in those once hidden form fields if applicable. We used the distribute command in Acrobat to enable the PDF and send out to the users. We're now noticing that even if a field is made visible, if the user fills in data or chooses an option via radio button, and submits the form, the data of the fields that were once hidden, don't appear in the response file. I'm perplexed by this and would appreciate any help that you all can offer. I should point out, that when I open the filled out file that wad distributed, the data is in fact there in the fields that were once hidden. I just can't get it to appear in the response file.

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually am hiding the subform and not the field directly. It seems as if any content entered into a field within a hidden subform is not collected in the response file. I can however see that the information is in fact filled in.
