Default Use Retrict method to filter forms


Is that UDF defined in the folder? It has to be to be used in a
restriction. You will also get errors accessing the field for items
where the field has no value, it should be initialized to a null
string when it is created in an item so the field is present in the
item.

Default Use Retrict method to filter forms


Thanks Ken. But could you tel me what excetly the meaning of "UDF defined in
the folder". How would I check if it is already defined in the folder? When
I went to the folder in Outlook and customize current view, clicked
Fields... button, clicked New Field... button, and then add a new field
called RequestType, and I got the error message

"The field with this name already exists in the "User-defined fields in
folder" field set. Enter a different name".

Does this mean the field is alerady in the folder? If not, how can I add it
to the folder.

Many thanks.
Long

User defined field that is defined in the folder.

You can open a custom form in design mode, go to the All Fields tab
and select User-defined fields in this item to see those fields,
User-defined fields in folder to see which are defined in the folder.

You define a new field in the folder and then when you add the field
to the item it's in both places. See
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=201438 for more explanation of this
and http://www.slipstick.com/dev/forms.htm for general forms design
information.
