Topic: Default value not displayed in Form Field

I am using VB to create text form field (see code below). I set the default value property in code, but this value is not being displayed on the form. Exiting and reopening the document does not help. However, if I go into the properties of the form field in Acrobat, and just hit OK, the default value suddenly appears. But I need this to appear without the user having to do anything.
I notice this same problem with the FormsOLE sample code from the SDK. I am using Acrobat 4.0 with the AFormAut 1.0 Type Library. Any ideas? Thanks.
Set AcroExchAVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
bOK = AcroExchAVDoc.Open("C:\mydoc.pdf", "")
If (bOK) Then
Set AFormAut = CreateObject("AFormAut.App")
Set Fields = AFormAut.Fields
Set Field = Fields.Add("Name", "text", 0, 100, 650, 450, 675)
Field.SetBorderColor "RGB", 0.7, 0.5, 0.3, 0
Field.TextSize = "12"
Field.DefaultValue = "Enter your full name here"
