    Creating forms (2003)

    Can you help me fix a simple form I am making for Outlook. I started with the basic email message, changed the size of the message box and added a label (While you were out) and all was fine. Then I added 4 check boxes to indicate if the person missed a call, visitor, etc. I copied the fields to the read page, but when I send a message. the boxes that I check are not checked in the received message. They have the same name, but are not 'linked' - what am I missing? Please see attached file for picture of the form.

    Thanks.

    My only immediate thought: Make sure the two forms use the same data fields for the controls (typically user-defined fields).

    That was it - thanks. If I create a frame and put two check boxes in it, it there a property that will only allow one to be checked at a time?

    thanks again!

    Check boxes are intended to be used side-by-side: it's OK to tick more than one. For an exclusive choice, use radio buttons.
