I've started using a custom appointment form in Outlook 2007. If I set the

custom form as the new default today, will appointments previously entered

with the old form still open with the old form, or will they open with the

new form? If they do open with the new form, will data carry over (if old and

new fields are the same)? Thanks.

They will open with the old form unless you go through the entire Items

collection of that folder and change the MessageClass to your custom

MessageClass. All existing data should be preserved.

Do you mean that you've modified the Windows registry to make Outlook use

IPM.Appointment.MyForm as the default appointment form instead of

IPM.Appointment? If so, then all IPM.Appointment items will display in the

IPM.Appointment.MyForm form. But if you have any items with a MessageClass

value of IPM.Appointment.AnotherForm, they will continue using that form.

Data always carries over; it's totally independent of the form that the

MessageClass property points to. Whether you can see the data in the UI is,

however, dependent on the form design.

Hi - No, I haven't changed registry, and I really didn't want to re-enter a

lot of future appointments that had already been entered with

IPM.Appointment. We use the calendar and appointments to track

people/facilities/usage for end of year summaries, and the custom form has

separate fields to enter data that had previously been lumped in the memo

field in IPM.Appointment. I changed the default form to my custom form

yesterday, and new appointments open with the custom form but old ones still

use IPM.Appointment. This is just what I wanted, thanks for the help.

By "I changed the default form," you mean that you changed the default form

for that one appointment folder, right? Then Ken's answer is an exact fit for

your scenario.

You might want to note for the future that "change the default form" can be

done in more than one way, so it helps to specify exactly which method was

used.

That's correct, just the one folder. Sorry i didn't give more info. Thanks.
