I create a custom task with 50 fields. I'm using outlook 2007, I create the

Task and assigned and when the other person tries to open it it get's an

error message.

This item cannot be displayed in the reading Pane. Open the item to read its

contents.

When they try to open it, appears the following message

Cannot open this item.

This is not the first time I developed a Custom form, I had problems with

keywords fields but I'm not using any in this one. The only different thing

it has it's a Button with a basic code. I removed the code a it's still not

working

Could someone please help me?

Thanks

Solange.

The first error message is normal. Custom forms with code behind them won't

display in the reading pane.

About the second error message, is that the full error text or was there

more?

Where did you publish the form?

FYI, there is a newsgroup specifically for Outlook forms issues "down the

hall" at microsoft.public.outlook.program_forms or, via web interface, at

?dg=microsoft.public.outlook.program_forms

I created a new task folder and I'm publising in this folder. then I install

the form in the task folder.

It's the only error that shows. I can't accept, decline, Delete etc.

Thanks

Think about this: If you published the form only to that new tasks folder,

how would Outlook know to look in that particular folder to get the form

definition? The answer is: It doesn't, and that's why the other person may

be getting an error when they try to open the item that you sent. At the

very least, you'd need to publish to each person's Personal Forms library or

to the Organizational Forms library on the Exchange server. For testing, try

publishing to the other person's Personal Forms library and see if that

resolves the problem.

Sue it's not the only custom task that we use and we always publish the form

in each personal folder because we don't have access to the exchange server.

Any other idea?

Thanks

I don't know what you mean by "personal folder." Are you saying that the

form already is published to each person's Personal Forms library, and not

to the new task folder as you said earlier?

sorry if I didn't explain myself better. We use the new task folder because

it's simpler to drop an e-mail in the folder and create a task with the

specific custom task of that folder, then to assign the task we move it to

the task folder. We publish the form in the person's new task folder, in the

task folder and in the personal forms library and it doesn´t work.

We delete the code and the button and is still doesn´t work

thanks for your help

I think I'm more confused than ever about what you're doing. If I read your

description correctly, by "assign," you don't mean Outlook's built-in task

assignment mechanism (which works fully only when a task is in the default

Tasks folder). Instead, to assign a task, the user moves it to a particular

folder. Is that correct?
