I cannot get the reading pane in Outlook 2007 to look and print the same as

2003. I use forms in Excel you send as email, not an attachement but you use

the body as the email. This allows the email, in 2003, to print the same way

it was set up in Excel. When I use 2007, it does not allow me to send it as

other than an attachment. People still using 2003 can send it to me but it

does not look like an HTML but more like rich text and loses all the

formatting.

What am I missing?

You may have missed all the articles that came out when Outlook 2007 was

released about the changes in how it renders HTML. Form elements, in

particular, are not supported. Users can, however, open the message and use

the Other Actions | View in Browser command to see the message in a web

browser.

As for sending from Excel with the spreadsheet as the message body, my blog

post at

exp explains how to configure Excel or Word to make that easy to do.
