How to give a custom form a name

Thank rjcpjc for applying my post.

I created this form base on message form. But I don't want "Message" as my form's title. How can I change this to a different name?(When I was publishing this form, I gave a display name and form name, but it doesn't show on my form's title.)

Thanks

Amy,

Your form is one offed.  See the following Microsoft KB article on the subject.  Check the message class of your form.  The message class of any custom form should be IPM.Note.FormName if the form is based off the standard message form.  IPM.Post.FormName if based off of a post item.  If your message class is IPM.Note then your form is one offed.  

Microsoft Article: Q207896: OL2000 - Working with Form Definitions and One-Off Forms.  

I hope this helps.

I just created a sample form based off of the message form and gave it a display name of TEST and a form name of TESTING.  It worked just fine.  When I published the form and then selected it from my choose form window, it opened up with the caption :"Untitled - TEST".  I did not see the word Message anywhere.  What is the message class of your form?

What version of Outlook are you using?

Hi Patricia

 My message class of the form is IPM.Note.HelpDesk Request(Which should show On my form's title). I am using Outlook 2000.

Thanks

Well, I've been able to reproduce the problem with an older form I published.  I'll see if I can find a reason for you today.
