Duplicate Field After Abbreviation Expand

I am using tab_abbrev and tab_expand to change a code in one of the cataloging fields to a full word.
However, after the expand is applied, I see 2 copies of the field: 1 before the change and 1 after.
Why is there a duplicate of the field?
The line in your tab_expand is this:
This causes a new duplicate field to be added to the record with the non-abbreviated form of the text.
Since you want to replace the old version with the new version, please try the following format:
WEB-FULL-1 expand_doc_fix_abbreviation REPLACE
(The available options are ADD and REPLACE, but ADD is the default if neither is specified.)
