Reproducing the Issue

  1. Configure one checkbox type custom element in Provisioning, or define this element on one form template XML file, then upload this form template XML to the instance, such as below:

<fm-element index="0" type="9">
<evalue><![CDATA[X ]]></evalue>

  1. Launch one form from the created form template
  2. Create one Story report by the following steps:
    Performance management >> Form template (defined form template) >> Form >> Form section >> custom element table
  3. Do the test by checking or un-checking this checkbox on the form, then check the relative data on the Story report showing for the two cases. You will find the "Sex's" value always showing the X.

Additional info:

Story report need create as above steps. If you create one story report by below steps, such as Performance management>> All templates Form template>> Form>> Form section, then this issue will not happen.
