In Outlook 2003 I have a published form which is a basic letter with the

following in the message box as follows:

Re: Our File Number: XXX

Entitled "XXX"

Issued XXX

Dear XXX:

The 7½ year maintenance fee was duly paid for the above-referenced

patent, as indicated on the attached communication from the U.S. Patent and

Trademark Office. The patent will now remain in force for an additional four

years.

No further action on this patent is required until XXX, at which time

the 11½ year maintenance fee becomes due. We have docketed that date and

recommend that you calendar it as well.

If you have any questions in connection with this matter, please call

XXX.

Sincerely,

Currently I have my user pressing F4 to search for the "XXX" which then they

type the information, then press F4 to go to the next "XXX".

Is there a way to run the form and then be prompted for the information

which goes in the "XXX" fields? I'm thinking I should put some code in the

form, like the following, but I'm not sure how to get it working. I don't

really have Form Fields in this form.

'Prompt user for Our File Number

strFileNo = InputBox("Please enter Our File Number", _

"File Number")

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

LDMueller

Are you planning to send these to external recipients? I would not use a

published form for that, certainly not without a lot of testing, because in

many environments it will create attachment problems for external recipients

who are not using Outlook. I would handle this either with a Word document

and mail merge or as a saved .oft file with a VBA macro to create a new item

from the file and then prompt the user -- preferably with a VBA user form,

but multiple InputBox() calls would also work. Instead of XXX, you'd want a

unique token string in the message body for each "field."

If you don't want to write code, you might want to look at the Email

Templates tool at http://www.emailtemplates.com.
