Yes, it's possible, but if you want to send people a Word document as

attachment and have them fill it out and send the document back, you should

be asking about the details of putting a form in a document in a Word forum,

not an Outlook forum.

If instead you want to do this as an Outlook message form, the prerequisite

is that someone has to be able to publish it to the Organizational Forms

library on the company's Exchange Server. And such forms would be for

internal use only. If you are able to go that route and need more help with

it, ask your questions in the microsoft.public.outlook.program_forms

newsgroup, which I've crossposted to this reply.

Yes, this is exactly what I want to do. I want it to be similar to a word

form, as far as the options you have to create the form, but I want it to be

an Outlook template. Are there instructions on how to accomplish this in

Outlook?

"Similar to a Word template" doesn't really match up with what you can do

with Outlook forms. You'll only get frustrated if you have as your ideal

something that looks like Word. Instead, try to get to know what Outlook can

do. Start with the information at

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=61 and

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?ID=35, then use the other

information on that site.
