Greetings everyone.

I am so happy to have found this forum and hope someone may be able to help me.

I have made my first form in Outlook 2007. It is very basic, just some "labels" and "text boxes"
I have the subject line prefilled, as well as the "to" field
I performed "run this form"
I published
It is saved as an OFT
It is in my personal folder library

When I pull up the form from my library, fill in the text boxes and press "send", I get an error "Operation Failed"

I have looked high and low on the web for some clues, but no luck.

Does anyone have a suggestion or solution?

Thank you in advance
Janna

Hi Diane,
No. If I do not prefill in the "to address", the form does not give me the opportunity to type in an address.
I am lost with this. I can make a simple message template and that works, but I must be doing something wrong with this form.

Thank you,
Janna

Can you post the form here and I'll take a look at it?

Hi Diane,
I am not able to upload the file, even though I can locate it on my drive. Is there another way to post the form here?

Thank you,
Janna

Hmmm. It's crashing Outlook here. I'm pretty sure its because the message doesn't have a visible to field. But adding it doesn't help.

Thank you for looking at the form.

I thought the form was pretty simple and that I followed directions, but apparently I have the ability to break the simplest of things :)

Maybe I should just go with a template, instead of a form, that may not be as easy to mess up..haha.

It's not published form vrs template. I don't think so, anyway - but try using a template and see if it works, because a quickie form I make in Outlook with the hidden address fields does work.

It worked for you?

I don't even know how to make the form without a hidden address field.

Thought I would "bump" this, maybe some new eyes will see and be able to offer assistance :)

Thank you,
