Outlook Contact Form Design Issue

by Hayward In reply to Outlook Contact Form

I couldn't tell from your post if by "..Original Outlook form..." you were referring to Outlook 2002's design mode Contact form or outlook 2003's default Contact form.

Perhaps this MS KB can guide you to a solution:

"The Outlook 2003 Contact Form Has a Different Layout When You Change to Design Mode

"(823133) - When you use the design mode to design a custom Contact form, the design form that appears has a different layout than the default Contact form. Additionally, the Add Contact Picture option does not appear in the design mode Contact form as expected."

Then, again, perhaps it won't help. After hours of prowling to learn why I couldn't make simple changes to my Contact form, the best I could find at MS was:

"This problem occurs because the design mode Contact form was not updated with the new Outlook 2003 user interface."

Yes, okay. And then...?

"And then" MS expects us to break out a heavy measure of VB, I guess.

Good luck!
