Topic: Fields created on the fly don't print

I am creating fields on a pdf using visual basic and then setting the fields' values(both default value and value property) with some data. After running the program, when i open up the pdf doc all the fields are visible and the data is also displayed but when i print it, it comes up blank . But when I open the properties of the fields and close them, then the fields will print. Any suggestions on printing the pdf doc w/ data w/o opening the property screens ??

My code is as follows-

Set AcroExchAVDoc = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
bOK = AcroExchAVDoc.Open("G:\test.pdf", "")

If (bOK) Then
Set AFormAut = CreateObject("AFormAut.App")
Set Fields = AFormAut.Fields
End If

Set Field = Fields.Add("temp", "text", 0, 35, 440, 75, 460)
Field.TextSize = "8"
Field.TextFont = "Times-Roman"
Field.SetBorderColor "RGB", 0, 0, 0, 0
Field.SetBackgroundColor "RGB", 1, 1, 1, 0
Field.DefaultValue = "some value"
Field.value= "some value"
