Cannot Modify a Form in Outlook 2003

By smortens ·
I want to modify the standard TASKS form in Outlook 2003 (add an 'Action' field). Following procedures recommended in virtually all Outlook 'how-to' books, I first opened a new Tasks form and then clicked on the Tools/Forms/Design This Form menu command. However, when I did this, I noticed that the two visible pages ("Tasks" and "Details") appeared to be unmodifiable. The editing commands are all grayed out on these two pages, and the standard grid-style form editor is not displayed. It's possible to modify the non-visible pages for the Task form, but not the two pages that I wish to work on.

Are these pages (Tasks and Details) somehow locked? Is there any way to allow editing of these pages? I noticed that this behavior affects some of the other Outlook forms (e.g. Appointments), but not all (e.g. Messages can be modified).

Any help would be appreciated. I have never attempted to design or modify forms in Outlook (or any Office product for that matter) before.
