HTML Editor is not saving content to the database

HTML Editor is not saving content to the database

Using the DataAssist Wizard to make the admin pages, I am having issues.

Inserting new items, or updating existing items, anything I put into the HTML Editor fields is not being saved to the database. If I understand the method of inserting the HTML editor, you simply click on the field to replace it and set your parameters for size of the window and other styles.

The non HTML Editor fields are saving to the database.

I've remade the pages many times and keep having different issues each time.

Appreciate any help.

UPDATE: After 2 days of working with trying to get the HTML Editor to populate my database, I fixed it.

I was replacing the field in Dreamweaver, manually after the page was built by the Wizard. So after making the page again for the 5 or 6 time, I noticed in the Wizard that I can change the display field from text to HTML Editor. That fixed it.
