Linking Outlook fields from the "Contact Folder" to a custom form in Outlook...
Using Exchange Server 2003/Outlook 2003, we have created a custom Help
Desk form in Outlook. We would like the ability to link specific fields
from the Contacts Folder (Example B), in a drop-down list box if
possible. We are far from knowing that something like this is even
possible. Would appreciate *any* suggestions. Thank you.
...Creating Equipment View
We would like to create a view which lists all the equipment which has not
been scheduled? I attempted to do this by using Advanced Find. We chose
Facilities / Equipment, selected Activity Party and selected Activity
(Service Activity). We then selected Scheduled End and chose Yesterday as the
No records were displayed. Does anyone have a better idea as to how we can
view this info.
Are you intetersted in custom solutions ?. If so please contac me to discuss.

Is there an easy way to do this?
Put a command button on the form. When you start command button it will run a
wizard for the setup. Tell it you want a search function. After the search
button is ready, run it and set up the search procedure you want.

If you really want to get crazy you could watch the control in spy and see

in the initdialog msg or something like that when the dialog is being
