Document with prefill fields is using inputted text to automatically populate other (non-cloned) fields.

I have packet document templates that have to be individualized for each of our clients, so we uploaded them onto adobe with prefill fields.

When we proceed with sending these packets (which are comprised of multiple, individually uploaded document templates) we are prompted to prefill the fields that apply, but we noticed that inputting a value in one of the prefill fields, autopopulates that same value into several other fields. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason as to why certain fields autopopulate and others don't. None of the fields have a default value set to them, and the fields were re-done to ensure that they are not cloned fields, but what's even more confusing is why the program is automatically inputting values in the prefill fields of one document based on what was inputted in a prefill field of another, separately created document.

If anyone has an answer, please reach out, thank you.

I am having this same problem!  The answer below does not help, of course fields may have the same name across different documents - but they should not be linked !!! Very frustrating
