    Personal Forms Shortcut? (MS Office 2000)

    I really like the simplicity of creating a personal form for repetitive email messages. However, I would like to bypass the FILE/NEW/CHOOSE FORM/LOOK IN PERSONAL FORMS LIBRARY/SELECT process and just put a shortcut on the toolbar for the two or three forms I use several times a day. Any ideas?

    IMO or Corp mode? You have several options, and the best method depends on the mode.

    Publish to a folder and select the folder, then the actions menu. (not recommended for IMO mode, no forms manager)

    Save as template to HD, copy to a template folder in outlook. select from the folder. excellant for IMO mode.

    Save as a template, use hyperlink on button to load template. Not sure if this works for published forms, i prefer the actions menu method.

    oops - knew i was missing more ways -

    shortcut on outlook bar instead of hyperlink on button for templates saved to the file system. this is another good one for IMO mode, since once published you need ot use forms manager to deleted them.

    Here's the cheesy macro I wrote before I learned anything about the features Mary's describing:

    Sub PForms()
    SendKeys "%tfop"
    End Sub
