Changing the Contacts Form

My employer wants me to take the Contacts form (Outlook 2000) that appears when you 2X click on the contact and add a Yes/No box. Naively, I took the first contact, 2X clicked and added in design view the Yes/No box at the bottom of the Form. Well, it was there all right but only for the one client. So I copied the form, made my addition, saved it and published. When I set the default to the new form name, the contacts Form is the original! What the heck am I doing wrong?

That link at Slipstick will give you what you want.  If there aren't many you can edit the form manually and save it.  This worked for the forms I wanted to change because I only had ten or so.  I believe the FormsAdmin will do all of this for you in OL2k.
