Input form fields not initializing...??

This was working before we upgraded PDM to 2009... so I'm not sure if that caused it or not.. but...

When we go to make a new SolidWorks part/assembly/drawing in the vault we have this structure:

Vault root
--->FB -- > Folder
------>FB20000 --> Folder
--------->FB20000A01 -->SolidWorks Assembly
--------->FB20000D01 -->SolidWorks Drawing

On the template input form card we have 4 fields...
1. Pulls the FB20000 from the folder and is read-only
2. Is a single letter drop-down for D, A, or P (Drawing, assembly, part)
3. Is a two digit code (01, 02, 03, 04, etc.)
4. Is a field to put them all together and this field is what names the file.

However, when I go into the vault and make a new SolidWorks file, fields 2, 3 and 4 are fine, they all have their information in the fields. But, when I get 2 and 3 entered in...

Field 4 just says A01... it's not getting the FB20000 that's coming from field 1.

But if I disable the read-only on field 1, and I delete one of the numbers and type it again then field 4 gets it.

Why am I having to manually do something to field 1 so that it will show up in field 4?

And this was working just fine in 2008 just in case it's an upgrade issue.
