Publish Form Macro


Jackson Smith

Is there a way to use a macro to publish a form from a
file on a network? (I do not have the ability to publish a
form to a public folder). Basically what I would like to
do is put a form on a share drive and a macro in Outlook
so every time I update the form all users can simply click
a button in Outlook and it will publish the updated form
to a personal folder. Can you give me a script example?

Yes, you can use the FormDescription.PublishForm method for this after
creating an instance of an item that uses the form from an .oft file with
the CreateItemFromTemplate method. See

An unpublished form cannot run script these days, though, so the form and
the installer script would need to be separate.
