Strange behavior of extracted document, Acrobat Pro

I have a file with a series of forms which contain fillable fields. The same fields are repeated on multiple forms.

Somehow the data from a past form is lurking in the ether.

When I extract any form as a single file and save it, the current data is retained, HOWEVER, entering each field causes the mystery data to replace that fields correct information, for as long as the cursor remains in that field.  Removing the cursor causes the correct data to reappear. The substituted data is always for the same account (Name, Address, Tel #, etc).

This occurs only on extracted pages.

What is happening and how do I fix this problem?

Thanks for any help.

Sounds like you might have multiple copies of the same fields on top of each other.

Can you share the file with us?

This doesn't happens when you extract the page with Adobe Acrobat DC.
