options.length is null or not an object.

I have a Dynamic Dropdown on a page which seems to work fine if I just go directly to the page in the browser. This page is part of a number of forms that update a record, when I arive at the page as part of the update process (it is form 3 or 3 forms) a parameter is passed as part of the querystring to open the same record again. If I try to use the Dynamic dropdown now I get an error message:

"options.length is null or not an object"

If I remove the parameter from the querystring and refresh the page, the dynamic dropdown works OK again.

OK I've done a little more troubleshooting. It has nothing to do with the querystring. In the previous page I edited the Update Record SB and deselected "Pass original querystring" and it still happens. Might be something to do with the fact that we arive at this page by means of a redirect?
