I'm having trouble editing a contact form in Outlook 2010. Every time I try to open in up for edit, it flashes on momentarily and then is replaced by an old form format from Outlook 2003. May be I screwed up when I saved the form in Outlook 2003 but, if so, how do I get the Outlook 2010 contact form format back again?

Any suggestions appreciated.

No screw up on your part - as long as you do not edit the first page of the form. The forms designer uses the old form - if you use Run this form you'll see its the new form when you use it - but if you edit the default page, it will revent to the look of the old form. As long as you add new pages for your customizations, you'll be ok. (http://www.slipstick.com/dev/forms.asp)

Thanks for your speedy response. Yes, it does show the new format when I run it. I didn't fully understand the advice in your last sentence - what I want to do is put a checkbox on the new-format contact form. How do I do that if it reverts to the old format during editing?

You won't be able to put the checkbox on the front page. It needs to go on P.2.




I haven't worked with forms regions, but they might work on the front page (and keep the new contact look.)
