Form Field

Hi all,

I feel silly asking such a question but i am going mad at this:

here is the scenario:

There are two forms A and B

i compose documents using form A and display it using Form B
but when i display it , i give the user the option of changing the values also. Once the user changes the value and saves the document, the form name changes to B but i want it to be always form A .

Here is what i tried:

I craeted a form field in the FOrm B and defaulted it to "Form A" - didn;'t work
Before saving the documnet, i deleted the form field and recreated it to point to Form A - it also didn't work

so my formula was

field form:=@deletefield;
field form:="form a"

I don't wnat a solution where i have to write a macro to change the form name again...:)

Any ideas or i am completely missing something
