    Hi everyone,

    Currently we have a form (MS Word) which has text box, check box, radio

    button,..., etc for users to enter information. Whenever we want users to

    fill out this form, we attache this MS Word file and email to them by

    outlook. Now we would like to integrate it into Outlook (we are using Outlook

    2000), so that the form can be embeded into an email message and users can

    enter information in the email message directly without having any

    attachment. Actually I have no idea on how to do this..... Does it deal with

    creating an Outlook form? I have no idea and I would be grateful if you can

    suggest any solution. Thanks in advance!!

    It is not possible to embed a Word form in an Outlook message or Outlook

    message form. You would have to create an Outlook custom form instead

    from scratch, nothing being reusable from the Word form. If you want to

    explore that route, yoiu might want to start with the information at
