Not updating the child field with data

Not updating the child field with data

I have two drop-downs and am using the Dynamic Drop Down feature to populate the second drop-down based on the selection in the first drop-down. That works fine, but when I click the insert button (on an insert form) or update button (on an update form) the second drop-down option does not get posted.

I did a work around and renamed the second drop-down and added the field as a hidden field and then wrote some Javascript to populate it. That works, but is there a simpler way?
