Problem with SwitchForm and assigning field values

Hi All,
I'm having problem with the following action code . The record is opened (in Read mode) as a leadForm with various fields displayed. The action button is supposed to switch the form so more fields and info are displayed, then assign a couple of values and leave it open in Edit mode so the user can add more information. The problem is that once the switchform happens, non of the fields get assigned their values.

tmperror :="This record is not a Lead."+@Char(10)+"Initiate Proposal cannot be done.";
 FIELD Form := "proposalForm";
 FIELD status := "P";
 FIELD pdate := @Now;
 FIELD pauthor := @UserName;
 FIELD pname := lname;
 FIELD pepf := lfee;
 FIELD pdollar := ldollar;
 FIELD SaveOptions :="1";

Are you using R6?  If so, try using the @UpdateFormulaContext formula just after the SwitchForm command.
