Server Validation is wiping recordset data values from form?

Server Validation is wiping recordset data values from form?

What should the default value be for form fields on an UPDATE form? I have them set to values from a recordset because it is linked from a "Edit Profile" button on a previous page. When the user clicks that button it takes them to the UPDATE form page and the recordset is populated by a hidden ID form element also passed from the previous page. That works, and the correct data is displayed in the UPDATE form fields.

Except, when I click the submit button on the UPDATE form, it carries out the server validation on the form fields and then wipes all the values from the form! :(

I was thinking that I was misunderstanding this and that the default value should be validated entries but that won't work because on initial load of the page no validation has been carried out?

Is this a bug?
