Hi,

I have deployed few custom forms in OFL and trying to use Items.Find
on my custom fields but getting "Property unknown" error.

As per MSDN documentation, "If you are using user-defined fields as
part of a Find or Restrict clause, the user-defined fields must exist
in the folder otherwise the code will generate an error stating that
the field is unknown. You can add a field to a folder by displaying
the Field Chooser and clicking New."

Can anyone pls. tell me how to create user-defined field for OFL
folder as I can't find such option for OFL?

Thanks.

The folder referred to is the folder that contains the items that use the custom form, not the Organizational Forms library.

Ok...let me ask my question in this way.

For all the exchange users, how can I use Items.Find() method on
custom forms that are deployed in Organizational Forms Library?

With a search string to search custom fields? You can't unless you add those fields to the folder you want to search, i.e. to the parent folder of the Items collection.
