Using VB in Outlook??


my question is:
I need to create a 2 page form in Outlook, where people can make their suggestions about some topic(in the first page in the form) and after one person is made his/hers suggestiond another person must comment it(in the second page in the form), and the made suggestion must apper in the second page also. People can make 0 up to ... suggestions about every topic.
So how can I make the suggestion makeing?
I thought that I'll make the CommandButton with VB Script - the user bushes the button and new TextField appears. But my knowlegde in VB programming isn't so good, that I can make that kindof script. Can anybody help? Or have some other ideas?
I need some help, pealse:)

Hi Piller,

I recently helped develop a CRM app in Outlook.  The following site I found to be very useful -

You will probably need to write to a database to get centeralized storage of the comments (unless everyone uses the same instance of Outlook).

I would also suggest that the comments could be implemented as notes.  A list of the relevant notes could then be presented in a listbox.  When you click on an item in the list box it then opens the relevant note.
