    Dropdown & normal list doesn't hold selection


    I am using InfoPath 2003 SP3.

    With my great surprise, the dropdown lists (and also normal lists) don't work. 

    I refer to lists with manually-entered values. The form is used normally saved on a PC, not on a webserver, the simplest case you can think of.


    Behaviour: you select a value from a dropdown, hit TAB to go to the next field and - voilĂ  - the selection in the dropdown automatically changes to the last value of the list.

    The problem persists even if I implement the list with a normal (not dropdown) list.


    More bugs I found: when you enter values manually for the dropdown list, you always specify a value and a description to be seen by the user. Well, the value appear to be blanked out as soon as you close and re-edit the control, even though when you use and save the form you can see the values are actually kept by the form (in breif: they are there, but you cannot see them).


    Am I the only one having this problem with this software?

    Is there any fix or workaround (perhaps by using the onAfterChange event?)

    Hey there. This doesn't sound normal to me; I just tried using a dropdown and TAB and I did not have that problem. Try repairing your installation of IP. Also, see if you get the same behavior on different forms. Hope this helps!
