I have a unique problem, when
i submit information in my
fdf, i can save it no problem.
However, if i am editing
exisitng work, delete the
data, and don't want to input
any information (i want to
keep the form blank), and try
to save, i get the value that
was in the field before i
deleted it...I would
appreciate any help at
all---this is driving me
crazy---i will owe you a big
favor if you help me with this

Here is my code

// This function takes in an empty data object, and fills it in with exising
// FDF data, then returns the filled object. (Gets whatever data is
// displayed on the form) -RYAN
// PROBLEM. If a field is blank or empty, it will not be updated here. The
// problem is that FDFNextFieldName does not get empty fields.
// Currently you cannot erase a field you must enter at least one
char. -RYAN
function GetFDFData(objData)
var objToolKit;
var sTmp, sTable, sField, sValue;

objToolKit = Server.CreateObject("eCaseLink.ToolKit");
sTmp = FdfDoc.FDFNextFieldName("");

while (sTmp != "")
sField = objToolKit.GetFieldName(sTmp);
sTable = objToolKit.GetTableName(sTmp);
// each FDF field
sValue = FdfDoc.FDFGetValue(sTmp);
file://if (sValue == FDFErcNoValue)
// {throw("Empty");}
catch (e)
{//skip all exceptions
file://if (e == "Empty")

objData.Add(sTable, sField, sValue);
return objData;
