What is the filename & path for Outlook 2010 (local) contact form template RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problem: A user can not read the font in her Outlook 2010 contacts on a local machine.

    Solution: I have enabled the Developer tab and created a Contacts form with 11pt. font in every data field.

    Questions:

    Can I save this form as a template which will open with the existing contacts? Regardless, what filename & path do I use?

    Or am I going to have to export all her contacts in csv, then delete all her contacts, and import the csv? It's not problem if that's what it takes; I just want to make sure before I do it.

    Thanks!

  • Hello,

    Forms are associated with Outlook items based on the message class values (see the MessageClass property of Outlook items). You need to change the default message class of your contacts to the value associated with your custom form. In that case contacts will be opened using your new form.

    Did you use the custom font to display content in the control? If I understood correctly, the others also need to install that font to make sure the form display well.
