Lotus Rich Text Field Contents Displaying

I have a form with two rich text fields. One field a user inputs info and when they save I then take that info and append it to the other field. For some reason after the info is appended when I open the doc in read mode the contents don't show, however when I goto edit mode the contents do show!! I do not have any "Hide when formulas set". To make it even stranger I tried a different way of using a seperate form for the user to input the information and then paste it to the main doc when done. When I do it this way the info does show up on the main doc in read mode. When I do a combination of both methods part of the contents show in read mode (parts done with seperate form) and the other parts don't show, any thoughts on what is happening??

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I know you said you don’t have any hide-when formula set, but have you checked both locations? I understand that you don’t have a hide-when in the target field, but what about the source field? Because these are RTF, a hide-when from the source could be copied along with the text. For example, does the source field itself show in read mode, or does it only show in edit mode? What happens if you change the fields from RT to plain text?

    I believe you are right. One of the RTF I hide when in read mode and I think when I copied it over to the other RTF it might have picked it up. I took off the hide when on the one RTF and it now works. Thank you for the reply.
