Hi all,

I'm a Developer, but no previous experience in VBA or Outlook forms.

I've had some custom Outlook forms developed (Contact and Task). The purpose of the custom work was allowing for some extra data input on both forms for our property management business (new columns = "client", "building", “project status”, etc.).

The forms worked well until recently when, as far as I can tell, the code stopped running. I have simplified the code until now it’s just:

Sub Item_Open()
MsgBox "In open"
End Sub

I run the form and get no MsgBox.

What am I missing? I would appreciate any input.

Thanks in advance.

JG

I'm guessing it stopped working with the June 13 update. This blocked scripts behind forms. It should be fixed in the Aug update if all goes well.

If you can save the form with basic info and reopen, the script should work. That's not always possible depending on what the script does... But could avoid rolling back the install.

Thanks, Diane. I've done some more research and your explanation sure sounds likely.
