this is the oddist thing,

i have four editable text fields called:

deleteFromA
deleteFromB
deleteFromC
deleteApproval


but when the document is saved

they become

DELETEFROMA
DELETEFROMB
DELETEFROMC
DELETEAPPROVAL

no other fields behave like this..

if anyone can shed any light on this i would be very grateful, i haven't got a scooby.

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
0
