I am setting up a shared contacts folder (exchange enviroment) can you please

help me with these 3 questions:

1) My understanding is that its not a good idea to play with the general

page in the contact form. My plan is to use the (P.2) page. Can i set this to

be the default page that one seen when opening the contact?

2) Can i share just a contacts subfolder?

3) Depending on the answer to #2 I will be sharing this folder. does the

form have to be published on each individual computer?

Thank You,

1) Yes, by using code behind the form to display a particular page when the

item opens, e.g.:

Function Item_Open()

Set insp = Item.GetInspector

insp.SetCurrentFormPage "Name of your P.2 page"

Set insp = Nothing

End Function

2) Yes, but unless you're using Outlook 2007, you'll also have to grant

Folder Visible access to all the folders farther up the hierarchy tree from

that one.

3) No, you should publish the form to the folder.

Thank you!

Can you help me with #2? When shoosing to open a shered folder it seems to

only give the main contact folder.

Thank you

To do that, we'll need to know your Outlook version, which you should always

include when posting in an Outlook forum.

Re: Oops im using outlook 2007

Is this in reference to your other thread? In the future, please reply to

the original thread, rather than starting a new one that contains incomplete

information.

In Outlook 2007, for non-mail folders, the owner of the mailbox containing

the folder can share it with others by sending them a sharing message.

Recipients get a button in the message to open the shared folder. See

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA012341741033.aspx
