     Hi,
     I've run into an issue with the field of values in a pre-populated drop down.
      
     In forms 1.0 I have a drop down that has a list of areas of study for our school. The pre-populated values are in the  formatted block of text below - however this doesn't work when used in a 2.0 form..:
     \|||\Architecture|||Art, Media & Design|||Aviation & Automotive|||Business & Legal Studies|||Community Services|||Computer Technologies|||Construction & Trades|||Culinary Arts|||Engineering|||Environmental|||Forestry|||General Arts & Science|||Health Studies|||Hospitality,Spa,Tourism|||Outdoor Adventure|||Police & Public Safety|||Veterinary Studies|||Automotive and Transport|||Administration and Business|||Construction Technology|||Mechanical Technology
      
     For some reason when pulling the same pre-filled drop down into a 2.0 form - the source text from above has been changed/duplicated to the following...  which still doesn't work properly:
     \|||\Architecture|||Art|\|||\Architecture|||Art
      Media & Design|||Aviation & Automotive|||Business & Legal Studies|||Community Services|||Computer Technologies|||Construction & Trades|||Culinary Arts|||Engineering|||Environmental|||Forestry|||General Arts & Science|||Health Studies|||Hospitality| Media & Design|||Aviation & Automotive|||Business & Legal Studies|||Community Services|||Computer Technologies|||Construction & Trades|||Culinary Arts|||Engineering|||Environmental|||Forestry|||General Arts & Science|||Health Studies|||Hospitality
     Spa|Spa
     Tourism|||Outdoor Adventure|||Police & Public Safety|||Veterinary Studies|||Automotive and Transport|||Administration and Business|||Construction Technology|||Mechanical Technology|Tourism|||Outdoor Adventure|||Police & Public Safety|||Veterinary Studies|||Automotive and Transport|||Administration and Business|||Construction Technology|||Mechanical Technology
      
     The way around this problem for me was just to re-input the data for the 2.0 form in the new simpler style. Though for the moment I do this every time I add the drop down to a new form - as I haven't tried to change the values in the source drop down settings outside of a 2.0 form. It's used in a number of other 1.0 forms which I don't want to take the chance of  breaking.
     Architecture
     Art, Media & Design
     Aviation & Automotive
     Business & Legal Studies
     Community Services
     Computer Technologies
     Construction & Trades
     Culinary Arts
     Engineering
     Environmental
     Forestry
     General Arts & Science
     Health Studies
     Hospitality,Spa,Tourism
     Outdoor Adventure
     Police & Public Safety
     Veterinary Studies
     Automotive and Transport
     Administration and Business
     Construction Technology
     Mechanical Technology
      
     I'd guess that the old method of using three pipe characters and slashes has no equivalent in forms 2.0... Whatever interpretation from 1.0 to 2.0 is going on doens't seem to be workin in this case. Though there are other drop downs that have no trouble being pulled into 1.0 or 2.0...
