Outlook 2010 form data to Excel Spreadsheet

I am not sure if this is even possible or if it is how much is involved to accomplish...

I have a created form where the text and drop down boxes reside on the P-2 tab.

Is it possible that when the user has completed filling  out this form they can start a macro (or when they click the send button) that the cells populate into an Excel spreadsheet?

my reason for this is that this form will not work on an Apple or Blackberry but if its possible to populate the form data to a spreadsheet then an Apple or Blackberry device could open that.

Thanks in advance for any insight on this problem and if there is any solution.

Hi, dgd1212.

Yes, that's possible.  Is the form storing the values as properties, or will the values just be in the controls on the form?

Thank you for the reply. I'm not real sure what the difference between saving the values are.

Each text or drop down box i right clicked and selected properties then selected the value tab then set the selections accordingly.

Hopefully that gives an indication where the values are.

Thank you

Values stored in properties persist even after the item is closed.  Values in controls do not.  If the values are being saved in properties, then they will be there the next time you open the item.  If instead the values are lost after closing the item, then the value is only being held in the controls.  I need to know which it is in order to provide working code.  I also need to know the names of the properties or controls that hold the values.

Based on your description the values must be stored in properties because the recipient of the form can see all the data upon opening.

I attached  a spreadsheet with the names. There are two columns. First column shows the name in the Display Tab. The second tab shows the property (choose field) name from the Value Tab.

Thank you for you time and assistance
