Topic: Form Field Flattening with ActivePDF

I am new to generating PDF files. I have been able to populate the fields on a PDF files with data from a database using activePDF toolkit. I now want to flatten the fields so that they do not appear as fields when someone opens the file in acrobat 4.0
However, when I try to flatten multiline text fields, the characters go out of the field. It works well if I don't flatten the fields. Has anyone encountered a similar situation? Any help would be appreciated.
I use the following statement to flatten the field
x = APToolkit.SetFormFieldData FieldName, FieldValue, -997
This works very well with single line Text fields.
