Easy... You probably create these fields from LotusScript in an agent, and they might not exist on the form or there is no form open. This is caused by LotusScript abbreviations, like
    doc.deleteFromA= value
This direct assignment method will cause the field to be created in uppercase.

If you want the "correct" fieldnames, use:
    doc.ReplaceItemValue "deleteFromA", value
