Designing form

Good morning.

I just designed a form in Outlook 2003 and tested it. When i sent it and checked it on someone elses pc, all you saw was the Text typed in, none of the field names or anything. Basically what I am trying to do is set up a form that when i send it, they can fill in more of the fields in their reply. Is that possible? And if that isn't possible, how can i at least get the field names, etc.. to show up for them? I suspect that my message page and read page are not bound, but i don't know how to bind them together. Please help! LOL

Hi, Samareanna.

Two thoughts.  First, when you created the form did you set it to send the form definition along with the form?  If the recipient doesn't have the form definition, then they won't see the form.  Second, each form is composed of two pages, the compose page and the reading page.  As the names imply, the compose page is what a user sees when they create/edit the form, while the reading page is what they see when viewing an iem created with the form.  Did you build the read page to display what you want the reader to see?

Ok...I'm going to try again and send the form definition with it...question though...when you ask if i built the read page to display what i want the reader to see, is copying it from the compose page enough or do i need to link them together in some other way?

I'm not sure what you mean when you say, "... is copying it from the compose page enough ...".  Copying how?  Can you upload a copy of the form somewhere that I can download it and have a look?
