We are building a custom outlook Form.  When I copy the standard Start Date and End Date combo boxes from the appointment tab to my custom form, the dates don't appear in the dropdown.  What property do I need to set in the combo box to make the date values appear just like the default?  Thanks

Hi, quizzer.

Right-click on the combobox and select properties.  Click the Value tab.  Is the control connected to a field in the underlying item?

No it is not.  What should it be connected to?  Thanks

Whatever Outlook field you want it connected to.  Controls are purely visual.  They display data on the screen and accept input.  They do not store data.  Data is stored in fields/properties of an Outlook item.  Each Outlook item (i.e. message, appointment, contact, etc.) has certain built-in fields.   You can add your own custom fields to what's already there.  For a control to be of any use it has to be connected to some field.  The field it's connected to is determined by the person creating the form based on what the form needs to do.  If you want the control to be connected to an existing Outlook field, then there is a complete list of all the fields available by item type in the online help.  If you want to create a new field, then in the control's property sheet, on the Value tab, click the New button next to the Choose Field pulldown and create a new field.
