Outlook Custom Subject Line - Contolled Input



I hope that I can find some assistance with designing a custom message form
for Outlook using the built-in forms designer . I mostly need to control the
subject line .

I need to control what is in the subject line so that messages might be
assessed and directed before opening them .

The subject line would have several parameters .

Zone Locale Dept

I can create these additional fields in the form designer . The input of
these fields needs to be combined in the subject line of the outgoing
message so that the recipients simply see

23 134 IS which correspond to Zone Locale Dept

How can I create this split input subject line , is there any sample code
that anybody knows of , or simply a hint on combining the input of the new
fields into the existing subject field ?

A great day to all ...

Depending on the details of your application, you might be able to use a formula to build the Subject or use code in the Item_Send event handler to set the value of Item.Subject. If you need a primer on property syntax for VBScript code, see http://www.outlookcode.com/d/propsyntax.htm
