Custom VBA forms in Outlook--how to call w/macro?

Following the directions in Sue Mosher's excellent book, I have still

not succeeded in figuring out how to implement the VBA forms created in

the first couple of chapters.

The directions say to click the Office logo, Save As, then choose .OFT.

Well. . . in the VBA interface, I don't *SEE* the Office logo anywhere!

Have been pounding on this for hours.

I'm using a straight VBA form rather than modifying an Outlook form

because VBS stinks. It's crippled and won't do much of what I need!

Trying to get this VBA form to someplace where I can call it with a

macro in a toolbar. . .

Help, anyone?

You're confusing the directions for custom Outlook forms and custom VBA

forms. For a VBA form you need to save the entire VBA project. To do so

click File, Save VbaProject.OTM (the VBA file) in the VBA project. You can

also click the Save icon on the toolbar.
