I guess I misunderstood your original question. OK, just read through it
again, and I have to ask: why are you adding bookmarks? Why not use the form
field names for the REF fields? (DOuble click any form field to open the
Options; you can see and change the name). My best guess would be that you
somehow inserted the bookmark in such a way that it's being deleted when you
type.

Also, do make sure to activate "Calculate on Exit" for the form fields so that
the REF fields will update (display what you type).
