Default Drop down entries in table disappear when selected


I created a table with a variety of down down box selections for each different column. It was working fine and everyone could complete the form with no issues. Now, all of a sudden, when the drop down box is selected, the choices still appear in the drop down list but when any of them are selected, the result is a blank cell. This is happening for most of the document. Any ideas???

After playing with this some more I was able to adjust display options to show hidden text. That seems to solve this for now but then "why is a drop down box selection considered hidden text"?????

The problem you describe results from either the cell contents or the Style used for the dropdown text being formatted as hidden; it's not a property of the dropdown itself.
