    Default Field Attribute Not Updating on .NET Insert?

    I have a routine that inserts a dynamic block (title block) into a selection of drawing files. This is done by directly editing the databases, not through the editor MDIActiveDocument interface. Everything works on the insertion except for one attribute that has a field that displays the selected title block size (a dynamic lookup table value). It shows up as a series of "#" signs. If I insert the block within AutoCAD using the INSERT command, everything displays correctly, so I don't think it's an issue with the block itself. My code does go through the attribute collection and initialize all of the attributes, just like all of the sample codes for block insertion demonstrate. I'm at a bit of a loss on how to get this to work right. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Have you tried
    Editor.Regen()
    after inserting
