Hi there,

As I'm new with working with Outlook forms, I'd like to ask for help.

I'm developing an Outlook form for the company I work for. The idea is

for people to go the calendar and book a laptop for a certain period of

time. The entry will populate the calendar when the form closes. There

may be quite a few entries in one day.

The information shown in the entry within the calendar is the number of

the laptop, the name of the person who has the laptop. The entries are

listed in the order they're created.

I'd like to find a way of sorting the booked entries by laptop number

so the are sorted from 1+.

Does anyone know if there's a way to sort the entries?

Many thanks in advance for any help

Just use one of the calendar table views, make sure that property is added

both to the items and the folder and show that field in the view using the

Field Chooser and then sort on it.

Thanks for responding Ken,

I'm not sure how to add the property to the Items and folder (I'm not

sure what you mean by item or folder).

I noticed your book, is there a section in there that may help me

understand how to do this? I'd be happy to purchase it.

Many thanks

There's some stuff on forms in my book, but not in great detail. My book

deals more with COM Addins and FormRegions and such.

Sue Mosher's book is much more oriented towards forms and VBA programming.

You can find a link to Sue's book at www.outlookcode.com, where you'll also

find a ton of information about forms and forms programming.

Take a look at http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?ID=38 for information

about adding fields to a form and what the results are of different ways of

adding those fields. Your goal is to add the field so it's added both to the

item (form) as well as the folder fields.

Once that's done and you use the View menu in Outlook to select a table type

calendar view you can right-click on the column headers in the table view

and select Field Chooser. You can then use the drop-down in Field Chooser to

select User defined fields in the folder and your fields should be listed.

You can then drag a field from the Field Chooser to the column header row of

the view to show the field in that space in the view.
