Did you connect the controls on the form to properties?  Controls do not store data.  They only display and edit it.  For data to persist it has to be stored in a property.  Data can be stored in built-in properties (e.g. subject, categories) or user-defined properties created when the form was designed.

Hi, timmyg1980.

Custom Outlook forms are based on Outlook's built-in form types.  You simply open and edit one of them and save it as a custom form.  The control pad in the form editor has all the controls you mentioned.

The recipient has to have the same form ir they will see the default form.  That's the problem with using custom forms outside of your own organization.

Does the recipient have the same form (i.e. have you published the form to the organizational forms library, or has the recipient published it to their personal forms library)?  If the answer is yes, then is it that the form isn't showing correctly (i.e. the changes you've made to it don't appear), or is it that some of the data you enter into the form doesn't appear at the recipient's end?
