Getting ahah to work in general is not the problem. I have it working on one form as I mentioned. The problem form has the values within a fieldset and the fields with updated data are generating new fields instead of replacing the existing values. It may not be the fieldset that is the problem, but I'm supposing it is because that's the main difference between the forms.
