Hello. I have a custom contact form set up. I would like to add a box that shows one of two different pitches (filled in part based on other fields) based on the value of a certain field.

For instance, if the 'HiringFirm' value is 'A', I want the box to show "I'm calling on behalf of <HiringManager>. Firm A has great capabilities!".

If the 'HiringFirm' value is 'B', I want it to show "I'm calling on behalf of <Hiring Manager>. Firm B has great capabilities!".

Keep in mind that this is a simplified version of the pitch. I actually need it to fill using 3 different fields in 6 places. Also, there are only two possible values for 'HiringFirm'.

Is this possible? If so, how would I go about doing this?

Thanks for the reply Diane. I got around it by using a multitab box and adding different fields for the hiring managers at each firm. The only issue I'm having now is a couple of OlcDateControls where the font size keeps increasing over time. Any suggestions there?

That's one way to do it. :)

The font size increases? Could you be using ctrl+ mouse wheel to zoom? Is this the only field that is affected? Do you know if its a new problem? It's possible there is a bug - possibly in riched20.dll - that is a problem in Outlook 2013 (but tiny text).

Yes, the font size increases. No I'm definitely not using ctrl+mouse wheel zoom.

There are two fields affected. They are on a fairly complex custom form, one right above the other, name 'Last Contact' and 'Next Contact'. They are both the only OlkDateControl boxes on the form. None of the 'Last Contact' fields are filled yet, but some of the 'Next Contact' ones are filled when the data is imported.

I wouldn't say it's a new problem. I have been experiencing it since I started putting this thing together. However, let me expand on my process a bit. That may help.

I created this custom form in a PST named 'Group1'. I then made copies of the PST and renamed them 'Group2' - 'Group13'. Then import the data to each group and use 'osmgclas.doc' to apply the form.

I set the font size to 10p. Having imported the data and applied the form to those contacts, the two OlkDate Controls in question both are set at 19pt.

Okay... did an experiment: Design form>Changed font size back to 10pt>Publish>Omgsclas.doc Group1>Font size set to 13pt, which I can live with. I'll let you know if it changes again.

Thank you for trying to help. I hope this helps someone else some day :)
