Topic: Urgent Database Saving Problem

We have our Acrobat Database Application all ready to be put into production. However, we have one last problem a tester just found.
If you open a PDF form, some fields are automatically populated. Your Employee ID Number (from our DB and cookies), Name, and Agency Number.
If you go in and change the EIN, the onblur__ action will go to our DB and find the new EIN, and change the Name and Agency Number fields to reflect the new EIN.
The problem: Right after opening the form, if you change the EIN (the name and agency change okay), then save (submit) the form to the DB, the new name and agency save, BUT the original EIN saves to the DB. It's like the EIN field is not resetting itself properly. Even though the NEW EIN is visible on the form. Also, when you retrieve the form again from the database, the EIN reflects the correct number... so somehow it's not clearing the cache either.
Any ideas on how to force that darn EIN field to reset so the correct info is saved to the DB? I've tried adding a onfocus__ action to clear that field out.. but that didn't work. It still holds the old number. Resaving the form does force the new number to save... but that's not functionally acceptable.
