Root Cause

This behavior is as per Pega product design.


Here's the explanation for the reported behavior:

The Data Table Editor Report is auto generated by the Pega platform and user must not change it.

When a record is updated, only the column values available in the Record Editor are set on a new page and saved. All the other removed columns, are set as a blank.
The same behavior is observed in the Activity step where Property-set is performed for two columns instead of four.
