    Forms ('07)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by t8ntlikly on 16-Apr-07 10:26. Picture added with further explanation)</P>I am getting ready for my Outlook Specialist test, so I am designing a Golf Course Form for my contacts so that I really understand how to do this and am having problems changing the background color. I have the layout that I want to use, but need help with the color.
    I have added a picture of how the form will look. This is the first draft of this new form. I have tried different schemes that are available and they do change the form while I am working on it, but when I save the form, the background reverts back to this yellowish color. I have read through Microsoft Office 2007 Inside and Out, as well as Ed and Woody's Using Office 2007 and Microsoft help and user forums.
    You will also notice that I have somehow lost the catagories bar, but I am pretty sure I know how I did that and know how to get it back. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    In earlier versions of Outlook, you could right-click various items and choose Properties or Advanced Properties to change the foreground and background colors. Does that work in 2007?

    Yes, that does work. The major problem is that when I change the overall background it doesn't save it that way. It reverts back to that ugly yellowish that you see in the screen shot.
    When I change the parameters of text boxes or font colors those save ok.
    Thanks John

    have you published this form to a folder? If so you might want to remove it from the folder and delete it / Clear Cache, and re-publish a new one.

    That is certainly an idea. Will give it a go next week.
