I moved a custom Outlook form from 2003 to 2007 and am having a problem getting the General Page, with the standard Outlook contact information, to display.  Here's what I have done

Open the form in the form editor.  Go to the General page.  Click the Page pulldown (in the Design section of the ribbon) and check the "Display This Page" box.  I go to save the form and get the following error message

"The File As field for this contact is empty.  you may not have entered a name or company.  Do you want to save this contact with an empty File As field?"  Yes or No

If I choose No, then I can't save the newly altered form.  If I choose Yes, then it's as if the changes I made never took place.  I go back into edit the form and the General page is in () and is not being displayed.

Any ideas?
