Use VBA editor on my custom OL form

I have been able to create fairly extensive custom forms using no code at all.

> . Outlook seems to be pretty custom form friendly. But now I am trying to

create a task form and don't think I can get around creating a "Send" button

on my custom form without code. Sounds easy enough, but I am confused with

the VBA editor... how do I add my already created custom OL2007 form to the

project to edit it? I can create a new completely blank form that is not

associated with the proper OL form, but that doesn't help me. The book goes

over how to create a new form in the VBA editor, and also goes over how to

design an Outlook Template via "Design a Form," but how do I design a pre-

existing template AND use the VBA editor to modify it? Or is the VBA editor

unusable on the Outlook Items in the Standard Forms Library? It's such a

basic fundamental that I hope I am not confusing anyone...

VBA has nothing to do with code behind an Outlook form, which is VBScript,

not VBA. Use the View Code command in the form designer to display the code

window.

Thank you! So when I create the "Send" command button control on the form,

OL2007 doesn't automatically create a Sub Send_Click()? (The view code

window is empty, so I'm guessing not?) So I have to create it? And when I

do, do I have to create any dim's? (Like for the namespace or item or

anything?) Or are they already created? And the method I want to call

inside the Sub Send_Click() is objItem.Send? (If objItem is already

automatically created, that is?) Thank you so much for the help!

Sub Send_Click()

Dim myTask As Outlook.TaskItem 'do I need to do this? or is the task

item already created and already have a name?

Set myTask = Application.CreateItem(olTaskItem) 'but I want to use my

custom Task, not the standard OL task??

myTask.Send 'this is essentially the only line I need, if I knew the

name that OL automatically assigns my custom Task form Item?

End Sub

Also, I have the Assign To: command button and text box on my form, and

they're linked to the proper fields and working, so I won't need to assign a

recipient in the code, will I?

I used:

Sub Send_Click()

Item.Assign

Item.Send

End Sub

And it seems to like it, but it says I cannot send a task request to myself??

I tried sending it to someone else, and I cannot be sure they got it at the

moment, but it is now in my Sent Items folder (good?!) Can I sidestep the

inability to send a task request to myself? (For testing purposes?)

You need to type in any Click event handlers that your form needs. Form

script supports two intrinsic objects -- Application for the currently

running Outlook.Application object and Item for the item where the code is

running.

No, as the error message said, you can't send a task request to yourself.
