Outlook Forms Not Working - Fields Empty

I created a form. Published it to the organizational forms. (1) When I input

data into fields, the data is missing once the form is emailed to recipient.

(2) When I edit the form, the 'compose' and 'read' layout buttons are not

active.

How do I get the compose and read layout buttons to become active again?

Why is data entered into the form missing once recipient receives the form?

Thanks!

Is this a message form? In what version of Outlook? When you published, did

you leave the "send form definition with item" box unchecked?

Hi Dear, I asked the same question yesterday.

Read the post, Fields are blank for recipient, it gave me the answers and my

form is working now.

Good luck!

Yes. Thank you. I read your forum before making my post. I am working on it

now, but am having the issue with 'compose and read layouts' buttons not

being active in the form.

1) Create both compose and read layouts with controls bound to the same

fields. See http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?ID=38

A message form, by default, has separate compose and read layouts. If yours

no longer does, that means you must have turned off that feature by

unchecking the Separate Read Layout command on the menu. That doesn't mean

you have to turn it back on if you don't want to. You do, however, need to

make sure every control that you want to use for entering and displaying

data is bound to an Outlook field.

(1) How do I toggle the compose and read layouts to turn it off and on or

vise-versa?

I was able to figure out that the fields needed their own control. So I am

in process of creating those controls.

(2) Can I assign the same control to two separate fields and different data

show up in each?

For instance, can I have a text box where I would type description of

problem and another text box where I would explain the solution - these two

fields assinged to the same control value but not display the same

information in both fields.

To toggle the option for separate layouts, use the Separate Read Layout

command on the menu.

No. There is no way to bind a control to two separate fields. A control can

be bound to only one field on the Value tab of the control's Properties

dialog.

Sorry, but I don't understand what you're trying to describe. It might help

if you used correct terminology. A text box is not a field. It is a control.

It can be bound to an Outlook property/field (those two terms are synonyms

here) and display the data in that field. Or it can be unbound and display

what the user types in or what the form's code sets as the Value property

for the control.
