Description FieldTable in MS ACCESSHi,
 I have CFM page where the description field (TEXTAREA) displays old value even after I replaced it with new text. As seen on the screenshot below, the new value that I assigned to Description field shows the new text and immediately followed by old text.

Old Value: "VERY CLEAN! Conestoga Kit, Air Ride Slider, 48x96 Steel Flatbed, 22.5 11 r Tires & Wheels, 50% Brakes & Tires"
New Value "Swing doors, spring ride slider, 22.5 low pro tires, 3 side doors (curb side) spring ride slider".

Here is my CF code:

 <td colspan="2"><b>Description:
                           </td> </tr> <tr>  <td colspan="2"> <TEXTAREA NAME=Description ROWS=5 COLS=33 WRAP="VIRTUAL"><cfoutput>#GetFeaturedItems.Description#</cfoutput></TEXTAREA></td>   </tr>

When I open the table in MS ACCESS, I see the new text in Description field and I do not see old text. I don't know where this old text comes from.
One thing that is very strange is that "VERY CLEAN! Conestoga Kit, Air Ride Slider, 48x96 Steel Flatbed, 22.5 11 r Tires & Wheels, 50% Brakes & Tires" is in two other records on the table along with different Item No and this is what is repeating.
