How would you go about doing this SendTo - groups problem

I have a Request Form(Parent Document) that has a SentTo Field - When The user creates the document they fill in the SendTo field from the address book.  The field allows multiple.  Then when they send it code populates a Outgoing Request Form with the data from the first form.  The SendTo field controls Readers Fields, a forwarding Action, Reply Action.  

It works great right now - with the exception of someone putting a Address group in.  It sends the email ok, but if you look at the SendTo on the second form.  It only has the value of the Group.

EG:  Request Form

SendTo:  DevMangers(Group = Bob, Jim, Chuck), Jaziar

Send Button Hit
Emails go to BoB, Jim, Chuck, Jaziar

but no on the second form

SendTo: DevMangers, Jaziar

It needs to have  BoB, Jim, Chuck, Jaziar not DevMangers, Jaziar

I am looking for suggestions - I was thinking of hiding the SendTo field on form 1 and creating a false SendTo.  When they hit send or after they enter INformation in the false SendTo it populates the real SendTo with the names from the group and not the group name.

So when the values pass to Form 2 - they are no differnt than if they put each in one at a time

What is the code that populates the data on the 2nd form.  Sounds like the 2nd sendto value is getting dropped there.

Why not just make DevManagers a multi-purpose group instead of Mail-only? It would then be valid within the Readers field.

DevManagers can come from anyones personal address book and it can be called anything and contain anyone.  So I am not sure how I was assign it a multi-purpose group?

If in form 1 I have Group in the SendTo hit a send ACtion (which is lotusScript - not system send)
when I open form 2 SendTo is already equal to Group.  Do you still think it is in Form 2 where the value gets lost?
