Subject:Unwanted Conversion of Custom ID to AFN

I am using PAF 5.2.18.0. In my PAF entries, I populate the Custom ID field with a number that indicates where in my documentation the entry comes from. I have discovered that if I export all or partial entries from one database to another, the information in the Custom ID field moves to the AFN field. This is a big problem, as I don't want Ancestral File to overwrite the information I originally placed in Custom ID. Is there a way to stop this? Any easy way to move the information that now appears in AFN for MANY entries in my database back to the Custom ID field?
