Outlook FORMs not publishing - Exchange 2003

Having a form issue. I think I know the answer, but now I can't get the form to publish with changes.
It acts like it does it, and when I go back to Design Forms... it shows the time stamp changed on the form, but the changes are not there.

Any clues? Any links to a REALLY good doc on how the whole thing works? I know it uses Public Folders.
But most of the articles I see are just "How to create/manage forms" and do not include the hard core details of the client/server interaction.

More info.
We had one form we will call FORM1. It had some VB running in the background to do some things.
So, there was a second form we'll call FORM1 REPLY. That was for all RE: FW:... or reply to all. So that the script would not run on each reply.

I think someone tinkered with one of them or maybe both. They had already tried to fix it when I got involved.

Now, when I try to modify the REPLY version, it doesn't stick. It shows a new modifed date, and a new revision number which I changed under the Properties tab. but when I open or Design that form it still shows all of the old attributes.

I'm banging my head on this one.
There was also a "Form revision: " text box on the main window that I modified. It also is unchanged upon opening.
I think part of our issue is that the REPLY form, is pointing back to the main script enabled form for replies... and that's what I'm trying to change. So that REPLY points to REPLY for all replies/forwards.

Hmmm, I think I found out why it wasn't publishing.
I had a copy of the org forms in my personal forms library.
Once I deleted the form from my personal forms library, I could publish.
That was the 'clue' I was looking for. Something so simple can cause so much grief.
