Outlook Contact form - Why can't I open an .oft saved form?


Wouter WES

Why can’t I open the saved: “Patient Form 10 October 09h30.oft†and what is
the benefit of having saved it as an *.oft format?

Thank you for your support,

Wouter and Elizabeth

The chief benefit of saving an .oft file is to have a backup of a published
custom form.

Beginning with Outlook 2003 SP2, users can work with most .oft form template
files only by opening the template from the Tools | Forms | Choose Form
dialog, browsing for User Templates in File System. The article at
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=907985 explains this change in more detail,
suggests best practices, and provides registry keys that can return Outlook
2003 to the older, less secure behavior.
