Hi,
I'm developing a helpdesk form
This is what i want to do:
I have a dropdown box with 2 values (contractor or own employee). Own employee is the default value. If contractor is chosen a textfield must appear.
I've created the dropdown box (name = EndUserType) and a textfield (name = ExpirationDate). My Outlook Version is 10.0 (Outlook 2002). I don't have a code yet. Hope anybody want/can to help me!

Okay....
1.  dropdown box field is called EmpStatus
2.  textfield is called MyText


Sub Item_CustomPropertyChange(ByVal Name)

'Get formpages
     Set curpage = Item.getinspector.modifiedformpages("P.2")<----This is the page on which the control is located.  If you used the first one in a message form, it is usually called "Message"
     
'Get controls
         Set myControl = curpage.Controls

     Select Case Name
          Case "EmpStatus"
                myControl("MyText").visible = true
        End Select
End sub
