Does this work any better:

Set insp = Item.GetInspector
insp.Close 0

Did you declare insp as a module-level variable?

Unless you have a statement like this at the beginning of your VBScript module:

Dim insp

you cannot set the value of insp in one procedure and expect to be able to use that value in another procedure.

Please reread my last response, which explained why you need to declare insp at the beginning of your code, before any procedures.

If the form doesn't run code after you have sent or saved an item using the published form, you probably have done something to "one-off" the form. Outlook 2003, Outlook 2002, Outlook 2000 SP2 and Outlook 2000 or 98 with the Email Security Update will not run code on one-off forms; see http://www.outlookcode.com/d/secforms.htm for more information on this issue.

To ensure that a form does not one-off:

-- Make sure the "Send form definition with item" box on the (Properties) tab of the form is *not* checked. [1]

-- For in-house corporate use with Exchange Server, publish the form to the Organization Forms library or a public folder's forms library, as appropriate for your application.

-- For collaboration via the Internet, publish your form to your Personal Forms library. Save it as an .oft file and send it to other people who need to use it with instructions to publish it with the same form name that you used.

Many other things can cause one-off forms. If the above steps don't work on a new item created with your form, see http://www.outlookcode.com/d/formpub.htm#oneoff for other possible causes.

[1] Whenever you publish a message form, Outlook will suggest that you may want to check the "Send form definition with item" box to ensure that the recipient will have the form, especially if you're sending to someone via the Internet. In the current Outlook security environment, this suggestion is obsolete. Ignore it unless your form has no code behind it.

Talk to your Exchange administrator. Maybe they haven't created the Organizational Forms library yet. Or maybe you don't have permission to publish forms there.
