Thanks Gerald, that does work. Wow, I never realized I was using a bug all this time! ;-)

I still think that it makes more sense to just use $fdat for all the form fields. It's simple:
get all the inputs there, and you can then add things to it, and these will get included in
hidden fields if you use [$ hidden $]. It's a one-stop-shop, all form data in one place.

But, your call of course. I'm sure it makes sense inside the code...
