Loss of data when using a screen entry form

Loss of data when using a screen entry form

Loss of data when using a screen entry form

I am using Gentran Director and have made an application map to generate an 856 edi file from our in-house application file.
Our file does not have some of the required info such as trailer number, so I generated a screen entry form.

I saved the file definition so that I would be using the exact same file definition for both, but when I open the document with the screen form I loose any data after the second order HL record. It does remember the data that I inputed, but I can't figure out why it loses most of the data.

Any ideas on what is going on?
