I know this is an absolute newbie question, but I've designed a basic form

with radio/checkboxes etc. All I want it to do is load, but I can't seem to

find any way to actually link it to an Outlook button?

I see references to posting forms that are a different format, (Public forms

or some such thing), and I tried exporting the Form (Not actually sure it's

technically called a form), any advice?

Is this an Outlook item form (contact, email, task, etc.) or an actual VBA

form?

What steps did you take to create it?

What version of Outlook?

Outlook 2003 11.8206.8221 SP3

Created it by going to the VB editor, insert UserForm. So far everything

I've found points to Contacts, inbox, message, calendar forms... but this is

just a form to generate emails based on user input.

You can add a button to the toolbar that calls a macro. A macro is a Public

Sub that takes no arguments. That macro would be used to display your form.

Assuming your form is named "MyForm", to display it you'd use code something

like this:

Public Sub DisplayMyForm()

MyForm.Show vbModal

End Sub

The vbModal argument would stop code execution in your macro until the form

is closed, and wouldn't allow the user to work with anything else in Outlook

until the form was closed.

To open the form in a non-modal way where code execution could continue

after the call to open the form in the macro and the user could work on

other things in Outlook use the argument vbModeless.

If you right-click on the toolbar and select Customize then you can select

the Commands tab, select Macros in the list on the left and select your

macro. Then drag it where you want it on your toolbar. While in customize

mode you can right-click the new button to set properties such as the name

for the button.
