    Outlook Forms (2000)

    I'm just wondering if there's any way to edit the default "Task Request" form within Outlook 2000. All the books that I have read so far on the matter thus far have said there's no way of editing it or even viewing it in design mode.

    Basically, I'm trying to reconstruct the form with a few changes and I cannot find all the fields necessary to do so and since I cannot see the defualt form in design view I cannot work out what the fields are?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Bit puzzled:<UL><LI>Outlook 2000 SR-1 (9.0.0.4527)<LI>File|New|Task Request<LI>Tools|Forms|Design This Form<LI>Default Form in Design View[/list]What step of yours have I not understood?
    Or are you on a network and the SysAdmin has locked down the form?

    Basically, I've done those steps and it refuses to let me edit either the "Task" tabbed page and also the "Details" tabbed page. They seem to be locked down within the software itself since I have administrator rights on the network

    I'm actually trying to edit the task form and details form, but according to Microsoft and Slipstick, its not possible and I'm not too certain if there's a way to crack the protection on those forms so they can edited

    While it is not ideal, from testing, you do have the opportunity of rebuilding the page from scratch. This does, however, mean that precisely duplicating the various field and control sizes requires some external measuring tools.

    I've tried to rebuild the form and theres a couple of fields I cannot recreate, these are the 2 check box options under the start date drop down etc. I've gone through and cannot find the relevant field names in the list to drag and drop them across
