Normally this would be because the field is named incorrectly. If you¹re
sure that¹s not the case, then something strange is happening. You¹d
normally want your field to look something like this:

<label for=²model²>Model #: </label><input type=²text² id=²model²
name=²model_no² value=²²>

Sorry if this is obvious to you!
