    Designing an Outlook Form (2002)

    Hello All,

    I designed a simple "while you were out form" and am having problems with the to check box option. I added the check box options and all seems to fine when I "run the form"..... but when the receiver gets the message the options are that were checked off do not appear. Any ideas??

    As a general rule, the data you enter into Outlook form controls (the true/false value, in this case) must be stored in a custom (user-defined) data field so that the form can be redisplayed as intended at the receiving end. I'm not sure exactly how this is supposed to work for the type of form you are describing, that is, whether you should create individual data fields for each checkbox, or whether you should use a script to store a single value (e.g., box 1, 2, 3, or 4) and have that in one field. Probably depends on the data and how comfortable you are with scripting.
