Which Library Should I Publish Form?

Karen

I want to create an interactive form in Outlook so I can send it to users and
then the users fill out the blank fields and e-mails it back to me. I don't
want the users to be able to access it. I only want to send it to them so
they can fill out the blank fields. Should I publish it in the Organizational
Forms Library or the Personal Forms Library? Any tips would be helpful. This
is the first time I'm going to be doing this.
Thank you, Karen

If you publish in Org Forms then it's available to all users in your
Exchange organization. In Personal Forms you would need to publish the form
on every machine where you want it to be available.

For lots of information on forms, where to publish them and how to use them
as you want see the forms information at www.outlookcode.com.

Thank you for your help Ken. I did some research and found that I have to
have permission to publish the form to the Organizational Forms library on
the Exchange server. I don't think I do. Do you know if there any easier way
to do this?
I want to create an interactive form in Outlook, Word or Excel (which ever
works best) so I can send it to users at work and then the users fill out the
blank fields with numbers and e-mail it back to me. I don't want to send it
as an attachment because an attachment is difficult to read on my BlackBerry.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I post this on another board?
Thank you, Karen

If this is an authorized project then I don't see why you can't either be
granted permissions to publish that form in Org Forms (even temporarily), or
your admins can publish the form for you.

If this is Outlook 2003 then you might want to use the Office Spreadsheet
control for what you want. See http://outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=69 for
one possible solution. Also, you can review the other forms information at
that Web site for other approaches.
