I am using a message form in Outlook. I want the value of field "A" to equal

what is typed into "A", appended to what is typed into field "B".

In my trials, I cannot get the information typed into "A" to stay, it gets

removed and replaced by the data in "B".

Would someone please help me with this?

Thanks!!!!
 
Try using the CustomPropertyChange event, as demonstrated at

Hi Sue,

Thank you for your help. This is beyond my ability level.

What I want to end up with is requiring the user of the form to fill out

either field "A" or field "B". I am using the text from these fields in the

subject line.

Is there a way with just the built in standard functions to achieve this?

I'm confused. The description in your latest message doesn't match what you

originally posted. Are you trying to do *both* validation and appending text

from one field to the value of another? Or are you taking the values of two

fields to create the value of a third?

FWIW, I have found over more than a decade of work, that VBScript behind a

custom form is not beyond anyone's ability. I would encourage you to read

through the examples and then ask specific questions if there's something

you don't understand.
