I have designed a new form. I started with a New Contact, Design A Form,

renamed (P.2) to "Data", then Published As, published as "P.2" and "Data."

(same form)

Published to Personal Forms Libary and Outlook Folders. P.2, P.2 & Data

respectivly.

I have several contact files. I used one contact file set, with ten

contacts, as my test file.

Within this contact set, New Contact (untitled) has new form (P.2 and/or

Data) in view, next to General...perfect.

However, how can I get all contacts, in this set, to display new form (P.2

and/or Data) without a copy and paste approach (Design a Form)?

I have not read any clear approach to this.....Thank you in advance.

I don't know what you mean by "contact file" or "contact set." Outlook

doesn't have a concept like that. If you're asking how to change existing

items so that they display using a published custom form, you need to change

the value of the MessageClass property on each item so that it points to the

published form's class, e.g. IPM.Contact.MyForm. The page at

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=39 has links to scripts and tools

to do this.

Regarding "contact files" and "contact sets," I have several types of contact

groups (files) listed under My Contacts. One specialized group (set) was

used.

For instance , "Personal" group (files) of contacts, "Business" group

(files) of contacts, specialize "Network" group (files) of contacts, etc.

The different groups of contacts are set up seperatly. The groups are

itemized, listed seperatly, under the My Contact heading.

I took a smaller group (set) to experiment with. I do not want to change a

form. I want to add a custom form to the existing forms; P.2 or data (either

form.)

When one is desinging a custom form, design mode displays several additional

forms; (P.2), (P.3), etc.

I would like to consistantly display P.2 (customized) in addition to other

forms displayed. Like this: General, P.2, Activites, Certificates, and All

Fields.

Thanks, Sue.

The correct term for the container for individual Outlook items is "folder,"

not "file" or "set."

Those are not additional forms. They are customizable pages of the one form

displayed in the designer. Changing one of those pages changes the form.

Then you need to do what I told you earlier -- modify each item so that its

MessageClass property points to your published form, as described in the

article I suggested.
