Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question! Could you tell me what version of outlook you are using to create this form?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think I already sent this, but if not, here it is again. I'm using Outlook 2010. I need to be able to checkboxes and enter text in the form, then send to another user for them to review. Right now when I can enter data, but the user receives a blank form. Thanks for any help you can provide.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for that information. Do you know if the other user is also on Outlook 2010?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi. Yes, all uses are on Outlook 2010. Here's a pic of the form, your system won't let me send the actual template.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
So you fill out the form in outlook, and when you send it the other person receives a blank form, correct?
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Do you know how the form was created? Is it using any VB scripting?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
To your first question, I fill out the form and send to another user. When they open the email, all of the fields are blank. They can fill out the form and send, but again all the fields on the receiving end are blank.
The form was created using the Developer window in Outlook. No VB or other code has been added.

Could you give this a try? : When you're editing the form, go to Page in the Form group, and unselect Separate Read Layout. It warns you that your read view will be lost, as now it's making the read and compose pages identical.

Tried thar early on, did not make a difference.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
I see...did you design the form yourself? Has it ever worked correctly?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I designed from scratch. I have never gotten it to retain the data
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Could you possibly send me a copy of the form via email? tientrang @ gmail.com
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi. I was wondering if there is any progress on this. I have to final this by tomorrow end of day so if you have any news please let me know.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Were you able to send me the form copy?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. Sent it yesterday.
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for that! Sorry had missed it somehow. I am looking at it now.
