    User defined fields (Outlook 2002 sr3)

    I have some "user defined fields" where I put some personal data of my contacts. Is there a way to have this show up on the main "contact" card when viewing it in Outlook? Now, when looking at the contact card, which has the basic contact info, I need to click the tab "all fields", then click the drop down box "miscellaneous fields" in order for it to come up.
    I want it to be obvious when I open that contact.

    Anyone with a thought?

    thanks,

    You can customize the contact form. See Tutorial: Creating and distributing custom forms with Outlook.

    Hi Hans,

    Ok, I got around to creating a customized form, per the link (thanks). I then wanted to have all my current contacts reflect this new form. So I downloaded and ran the "Osmgcls.doc" and followed the instructions. It processes all my contacts, but nothing changed. I have two contact folders under my Outlook tree: the original "Contacts" and a new one I created per the linked websites instructions, called "MyContactform". When I published the new designed form, I named it "custom".
    So, when running the macro in Osmgcls.doc, I changed the class to :IPM.Contact.custom, but while it "processed" all the contacts, nothing changed.
    what am i missing?

    thanks,

    I'll have to leave this for someone else to answer. I don't know anything about custom Outlook forms.
