Problem with losing pull down menu value AND with unexpected data persistance across two different pages...

Problem with losing pull down menu value AND with unexpected data persistance across two different pages...

This is really weird. I am having a problem with a static pull down menu (4 horse show dates) . The user picks one of the dates, fills out a form that includes the Form Builder pull down State menu and then POSTs all of that form to a eCart shopping cart page.

If you back up to the Entry Form page from the shopping cart, the State selection is retained, but the Show Date is lost. Very odd, because I built the Date menu by using the State menu code. In addition, a "CLEAR" button I added to that page does nothing.

My next step is to build a stripped down page to isolate the problem. I was surprised to find that the very first time I opened that stripped down page (new name, new browser window) - that page was populated from the data I had entered in the misbehaving Entry Form page.

How do I get a page to reset when I want it to and keep it from reading form data that belongs to another page?
