Hello,

I have a problem with a dropdown-menue-field in an SP-Form. When I open the form in edit-mode the field choses the first option of the dropdown-list automatically. The originally set value is overwritten after saving the form.

This only happens, when I edit with the SP-Form.

In grid-mode the values don't change.

Any idea, what has happened there?

Dear UDRO,
Can you show us some screenshots? Also, any custom JavaScript on the form? Can you try it without it?
Cheers

There is not much Javascript in the form. I removed it, but problem is still there.

Value in display-mode:

Dear UDRO,
Can you send me a screenshot of the whole form in Forms Designer? Including the fields and the version number, like this:

Dear URDO,
Thank you! This actually appears a rather straighforward case - I've just noticed that the selected value is no longer available in the dropdown! It appears to be stored correctly as text and displays properly in Display form as text, but as soon as the Edit form is loaded - it's not found in the dropdown field, and it defaults to the first value:

You should probably add this value back to options in List Settings - Column settins.
Cheers
