Are you using PUTOVR by chance on the header of your screen on the DDS? If so, did you set OVRDTA attribute to your field?

Subject: DDS field that refuses to update no matter what

I'm having a Friday afternoon senior moment. I'm thinking that I'm
missing a DDS keyword or something. I've got a promptable field in a
display file. I can press F4, the prompt window displays, and I select
the value. When I debug the RPG/Free code it shows that the variable has
the selected value. The problem is that when the program loops back to
the EXFMT statement the new value isn't in the field. Instead, it has the
default of zero. If I hit ENTER or a function key the zero is put into
the variable. Other than that, the screen looks just fine following the
prompt. I have the additional parameters set as:

Enhanced display . . . . . . . . *YES
Restore display . . . . . . . . *NO
Defer write . . . . . . . . . . *YES

Thoughts? We are at V5R4.
