    OFT Templates in Outlook (2000/SP3)

    Hi all, I have just upgraded to SP3 as was suggected in Woody's newsletter and now a *.oft we use to book travel with our booking agents will no longer work. It use to come up and ask if I wanted to enable macros or not this no longer happens. Has anyone any suggestions?

    First check your security level to see if the update adjusted it. Tools|Macro|Security... - you want Medium.

    I have checked my macro security level and it is at medium. I even changed it tp low to see if that would make a difference but it didn't. Thanks for you suggestion anyway.

    is it a published form or stored on your hard drive? i think they tightened security so it needs published to work.

    Unfortunately its not worth publishing it as the background script appears to be being ripped out by the new security features as soon as it enters Outlook. Thanks for your suggestion on this one but it appears that this is yet another overly restrictive security fix from microsoft. They could have left an option in that would have allowed you to keep the script after the usual prompt, but that would have been to easy.
