Hi, Tim

I have it.
The Python Script I sent you:

container.propertysheets['job_info'].manage_changeProperties(REQUEST)

needs to be rewritten:

container.propertysheets.job_info.manage_changeProperties(REQUEST)

Perhaps someone could explain why the first does not work.

One point about your form:

You have id as a form variable.  You will be disappointed by its
behavior.
