Viewing Forms

I am very new to trying to create forms, and I am sure I am missing something

simple. I have created a custom form trying to request data about employee

leave. It has simple fields like a drop-down list of employee names and

their ID numbers, the payroll date they were absent, a list of reasons they

were absent, etc. If I "run this form" I am able to fill it out and e-mail

it to myself, but when I'm viewing it in outlook all I see is teh message

body.

However, if I double-click on the e-mail it does open up the form and I can

see all the fields that the user submitted.

How can I make it so that those items are viewed automatically in Outlook,

rather than having to double-click on it to open it in a new window?

First of all, the form isn't going to work at all if you can't publish it to

the Organizational Forms library on the company Exchange server or to each

user's Personal Forms library. So check that prerequisite before you go any

further with this project.

Second. custom form layouts don't display in the reading pane. Users will

need to open the items.
