Additional columns on lookup field prepopulated with values on new item form.

Hi.

I've created a new_item form for a list in which I have a lookup column with additional fields.  After I add at least one item to the list, every time I go to the "new_item" form, I have those additional fields prepopulated with some values from before, although nothing has been selected in the lookup field itself.

Why is this happening, and how can I avoid this?

    I can recommend you to remove additional fields from New form because they are filled with data after saving only.

    Having them filled only after saving is what I (the client actually) want. My problem is that they have some values in them even on new_item form, although they should not.

    Can I get them not to show any values until saved??

    [#2]: Hello,

    Just remove them from New form. Leave them on Display and Edit forms only.
