Custom Field Cannot Be Displayed In Views

I have Office 365 (up to date).

I am using my Contact folder with a local PST file on my computer.

I have a custom form with multiple custom fields.

Using the control toolbox I added a combo box using the Microsoft Forms 2.0 control. I then added a new text field with the possible values, etc.

I see the field in the contact form and all is OK. As soon as I try to display the new field in the folder using a table display, no data displays. When I remove the field, all the data displays in the table view.

I created a new view with just that new field and no data displays.

I have repaired the PST file multiple times.

Other fields of the same type are appearing with no issues.

Any suggestions why my new custom field does not appear in my views?

Follow this :-
-Open the View Settings dialog from the View ribbon. In Outlook 2007 and older, its Customize view and you can right click on the header row above the message list and choose Custom or Customize View (Outlook 2007 and older) from the bottom of the menu.
-Click Columns to open the Show Columns dialog.
-Click New Column button.
-Create a custom field of the Yes/No type and add it to the view.
-Click Other Settings.
-Enable in-cell editing so you can check (or uncheck) it to mark an item.
-Return to Outlook.
-Click in the column you just added to mark a message
Hope this helps you

JesseWalter375:

Thank you for your help.

Unfortunately no matter what I tried it would not work. I had to create a new PST file and new form to get it to work.

With the old PST file, I tried new folders, new forms, new fields (also would not display in any view type), etc. I also tried repairing my PST multiple times, but still no luck. Maybe the form and/or my PST file was bad.

Again, I really appreciated your help.
