Modify Outlook 2007 Task Form to get a resource via HTTP & Parse XML from SharePoint
Posted on 2013-01-31
In SharePoint 2007, I have a project task list. One of the columns in that project task list is a lookup to the project list to get the project name.
I connect the project task list to Outlook and can now manage these tasks from Outlook.
Since the project name is a lookup in the SharePoint project task list (that I connected to Outlook), I cannot see the project name in the Outlook task form.
Is there a way to modify the task form in Outlook, possibly with VBA, to get a resource via HTTP? If so, I can reference the XML from the project list but then I would need to parse it to reference only the project name column (is that possible)?
