hide paragraph if formula is true problem

Hi,
I created a section and used

"Hide paragraph if formula is true" for the section with the following content:
bstatus!="submitted"

where bstauss is a text fieldname.

somehow even if the bstatus shows a value of "submitted" the section
is still visible to the users.

In the same form there is another section which checks the value of the bstatus field for hiding.
However sometimes only the section header is hidden when the formular evaluates to true.

Any clues?
Thanks !!

WHat is the value of bstatus when the computation takes place? Is bstatus a computed field? Its values when the comparison is done is important! CHeck that.

I suspect you are working on the assumption that the value of bstatus remains "submitted" when comparison takes place. Check to see if any two of the involved field's value changes when the comparison happens.

its default value is "pending"
and it is a computed field.
its value when the comparison is done is "submitted"
thanks!

You must 'refresh hide formula's' after changing the field value.

Does it hide after you press F9 ?

Why do you only give a grade 'B' on not only this, but all your accepted answers ????  
I do think all (most of the) answers you receive are spot-on,  and therefore should be rewarded an 'A' .  

And you should try to 'split' points, whenever more than 1 person provided you with valuable input to solve the problem ....  

cheers,

Tom
