    Problem with custom form including _DocSiteControl1

    Intending to edit a custom form, I inadvertently opened an existing record rather than the new item form (a few years since I developed the forms!). I have done so before on occasions and have simply been able to go into each field and blank out the unwanted data before publishing (without...

    Conditional formatting - font sizes

    I have two exchange accounts setup in the OL2013 desktop client - they behave differently when defining custom views - one shows conditional font size options only as 'smaller, normal, big and bigger' whilst the other gives actual font size options i.e. 8,10,12,14 etc. Anyone explain what's...

    Conditional formatting - font sizes

    Diane, the 'smaller,normal,big and bigger' always return 9pt.11pt 14pt and 16pt in the dialogue box regardless of the 'normal font size for the view, so as you say probably hard coded - but there does seem to be something else going on since when the view font is set to 11pt and the conditional...

    Conditional formatting - font sizes

    This seems like a really basic issue so it's probably been answered many times - apologies in advance. When changing the font in a message list view to 8pt Arial in OL2013 the choices for the conditional formatting of unread messages are: smaller, normal, big and bigger. If I select 'normal' I...

    Move Personal Forms Library

    Found the answer - if it helps anyone else it's as simple as copying the tmp files from the AppData/FORMS/*message class* folders in the backup to a new folder on the target machine, renaming them with the .oft file extension, then opening them in Outlook - New Item > More Items > Choose Form...

    Still looking for inspiration on this - anyone?

    Move Personal Forms Library

    OK, but in that case the personal forms that were in the ost file (and synced with the server) before being deleted locally, would have been recreated in the new local ost created and synced with the server when the mail account was recreated on the pc - which is what I thought would happen -...

    Move Personal Forms Library

    When you say 'the data file' presumably you mean the pst or ost file? If so, whilst I backed up pst files (a different mail account) I didn't back up the ost files on the assumption they would be recreated when synched with the server. If so I guess they are gone. However I do have a pst file...

    Move Personal Forms Library

    Diane, as as test before I go hunting for cfg files in old backups I created a new custom form and saved it in my personal forms library - where should I expect to find the cfg file for the form? Or would there not be one without some other action - it doesn't appear in the folder you specified...

    Move Personal Forms Library

    Thanks for quick reply Diane. I only have one file in each of the form folders (IPM.xxxx.xxx) within the FORMS folder and they are .tmp files. When you say the .cfg file will be in 'the office installation folders' where do you mean exactly - I may be able to extract them from an older backup set.

    Move Personal Forms Library

    Had to reinstall OS and data -Win 8/Office2013 - all good up until OL2013 custom forms - naively perhaps I thought I could just copy the backed up AppData\Local\Microsoft\FORMS folder over the existing folder - wrong! Is there any way of doing this? ('instaling' the forms needs a 'cfg' file...

    ActivitiesTab in OL2000 - same functionality in OL2013?

    In OL2000 I was able to view all items in a given folder for a contact using the 'activities' tab, and I used this to see all 'bookings' (which were actually calendar items) for a contact - OL2013 doesn't have this feature, is there any way I can achieve this functionality?
