Fix for modified Form field value is ignored when document is submitted from the Web

Some Notes developers use the Form field to have a document display through a form that is different than the form in which it was originally created. By changing the value in the Form field from one form name to another, you can determine through which form the document displays. For example, a document is created using a form named FormOne. This document contains a field named Form that lets the user selects a different form name, i.e., FormTwo. When this document is saved and closed, the next time the user goes back into the document, the document displays through the form named FormTwo.

However, if this document is created on the Web, the value in the Form field is ignored when the document is submitted and the document displays through the form named FormOne, regardless of the value that is entered in the Form field by the Web user.

Here's how to resolve this. In the webquery save of the form, remove the @command part and give the following:

field Form:=form;
