In Outlook 2003 we were using the field 'contacts' to save some important

data. When we upgraded to Outlook 2007, that field is no longer editable.

I've created a custom contact form that includes the old 'contacts' field,

but I can't make it appear when I open a contact from a public folder. I've

published the new form to the folder, and set it as the default form for that

folder. Can you tell me how to make this field visible and how to make it

editable again?

Thanks,

Joe

In Outlook 2007, the Contacts box for linking items to contacts does not

appear by default. You will need to turn it on -- Tools | Options | Contact

Options | Show Contact Linking on All Forms.
