Hi.

Can anyone help me with this please: I have a custom Contacts form which I

published to a public Exchange forder.

Now when I try to create a new contact with it and save it - new contact

gets saved in same folder where the form is published.

What am I doing wrong? Folder setup or some other settings?

Also, if it matters, form has additional ActiveX (MSMonthView, mscomct2.ocx)

control in it, I register controls on client's pc and add a registry entry,

like described in

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=67

TIA,

Alexey

If the form is published to the folder that's where it will be opened. I'm

assuming that it's not published anywhere else, since publishing in more

than one place is a really bad thing.

If you want the form available somewhere else publish it somewhere else such

as the Organizational Forms library or the Personal Forms library.

Ken,

Thank you for your reply,

but I mean that NEW CONTACTS, created with that form, when user selects

File->New->ChooseForm, are saved there as separate files - and don't appear

in Outlook

If the forms are in public folders they are in Outlook.

As I said, you need to publish to another location.
