Outlook and Visual Basic

I have build a custom form in outlook 2000 which has 2 labels. Now i am calling this function from a visual basic project which is sending this form as mail.This is what i am writing in the vb project. This vb project i am creating in Visual Basic 6.0.
general Declaration
Dim objoutlookapp As New Outlook.Application
Dim objoutlookmail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objins As Outlook.Inspector
Dim objModifiedForm

on button click:
Set objoutlookapp = New Outlook.Application
Set objoutlookmail = objoutlookapp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items.Add("IPM.Note.HEP_RESPONSE")
Set objModifiedForm = objoutlookmail.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("Response")
objModifiedForm.Controls("lblRsNoVal").Caption = "23445"
objModifiedForm.Controls("lblCustNo").Caption = "1234"
objoutlookmail.To = "fdfdf"

objoutlookmail.Display
and then the user clicks send.
Now the problem is that before sending the mail all the label values is coming but on receiver end these values are not coming.  I have already attached these values by creating the "user fields" in the custom form but still it is not getting saved.

any idea where i am wrong!!!

pg dont worry on points. this is not the only reason i answer questions

is the custom form showing the fields? when i created a custom form
objoutlookmail.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("Response") returned nothing. can you explaing the custom form setting? one more thing can you email me the custom form ro bhagyesht "at" fastmail.fm?
from the code the following can be concluded
you are setting the caption's value
just in case you are not aware in a custom form you have 2 pages one for the editing or composing and the other is for the user to read. you should be able to see both this pages from the form menu and select edit read page. its the read page that the user sees. try to set values to this page.
or tell me what are your custom form's settings

ok pg I was able to send a message with user defined fields and the following is how you should be able to do the same.
first i designed a form and published it under the name as HEP_RESPONSE
then in the "All fields" tab under the drop down of "select from" select HEP_RESPONSE
add a property named as bt1
publish the form
now make active the message tab
goto the form menu and select "Edit Read page"
add a label
right click on the label and goto properties
goto the value tab and select the field bt1
publish the form

now the following code runs fine



'code begins
Dim objoutlookapp As New Outlook.Application
Dim objoutlookmail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objins As Outlook.Inspector
Dim objModifiedForm

Set objoutlookapp = New Outlook.Application
Set objoutlookmail = objoutlookapp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items.Add("IPM.Note.HEP_RESPONSE")

objoutlookmail.UserProperties("bt1").Value = "1234"
objoutlookmail.To = "test@testme.com"

objoutlookmail.Display
'code ends
