Question: Create Outlook 2007 Button for custom template

Hello, i have used the customize toolbar, added a button and assigned a hyperlink to an .oft file on my computer so that i can in one click create a new mail using my home made template but outlook pops up a message security dialog box every time that i have to click ok before it proceeds, i can't find any setting to turn this off in security center.

Can i go about creating this shortcut to create new mail in a different way?

Also, can i create a similar button for reply to an e-mail using this home made template?

How Do I create a custom folder template so I can use it and apply it to other folders. The only option it gives are General Items, Documents, Pictures, Music, & Videos. Five is far too little for any computer. I need to create templates for Fonts, Photoshop, 3d, and others. I don't want to use only the five given to me because it will ruin everything already set to those templates. All I can find is how to change the settings for the five already listed but nothing about how to create new custom templates. Many results are misleading, including ones on this forum, with titles that specify custom folder templates but only asks how to adjust certain folders or customize the current default 5. There seems to be no information, let alone a single post about this problem because Google, DuckDuckGo, and every search engine doesn't show anything to this specific problem. They all only show results on how to adjust the default ones. I am surprised that since Windows 7 came to be in 2009, nobody has inquired about this. How would I accomplish this task?

Answer:Creating an HTML Template on Outlook 2003/2007

Hi SrillAlive,

Outlook was never designed to be anything other than an end user WYSIWYG editor. (What You See Is What You Get) While you can right click on HTML emails you recieve, and View the Source html, there is no "out of the box" way to compose an html email.. Outlook does it automatically for you. There are add ons availabe... but they tend to be overpriced for what you want to accomplish.

It looks like you host through ... I'm not familiar with what type of email solution they offer you or if you just resolve your mx records to point to your own server. Regardless IF you use thier email application they probably have a web interface and a way to compose email from it.

I would assume your best bet would be to start there and see if you can copy and paste your code to the web interface.
There will more than likely (hopefully to make it easy for you) a way to select the formatting of your message in thier email solution...e.g. switch from rich text to html < >

....OK now I looked up your MX record and it looks like you would log into
Start there amd see what you can accomplish.

Another option is to use a diffent application to compose and send your email or build a simple vb app and call on outlook ado's

There are a ton of free open source progs that do just this... its a matter of preference and ease.. I would recomend one but I don't use them that offten as I... Read more

Thanks in advance.

Answer:create a copies of template worksheet based on a template

First, before posting any more code in this forum, please click on the blue line at the end of this post and read the instructions found via that link.Second, the reason you are getting that error is because you are referencing a row that doesn't exist in the spreadsheet. Let's say there are 65,535 rows in a spreadsheet. Range("A7" & Rows.Count) will convert to Range("A765,535") which would be illegal.The correct syntax is Range("A" & Rows.Count) which will refer to the last row in any spreadsheet, whether it's Excel 2003, 2007 or 2010.Finally, if you want to learn how to debug VBA code, start here: Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.

This a bit of an anal retentive request, but I'd be interested in knowing if it's possible.

I have a user who would like to have a custom button in his Outlook toolbar that will automatically move highlighted email to a specific folder, much in the same way that the delete button moves any highlighted email to the Deleted Items folder.

Probably a bit of a long way round seeing as the user could just highlight and drag to the folder... but for the sake of convenience and my own curiosity... is it possible to do this? And if so, how?

Version of Outlook is 2003.

My contacts are displayed in a form that looks different from the form that I was used to in previous versions of Outlook. In this form the Notes text box is moved over to the right and an automatically generated image of

I need to add one extra field onto this form. When I attempt to design this form it loads as the old style Outlook form with the Notes text box across the bottom and no control for the business card.

I have also tried adding a new contact which automatically opens the new form and while I have this form open, I select Developer > Design this Form but as soon as the form designer is loaded the form appears in the old style.

I presume you have already a (default) contact group in your Outlook (under "Contacts"). Navigation pane is open.Assuming under "My Contacts" there is a folder "Contacts", If you select/click "Contacts" all stored/added contacts will be displayed.From the menu: "File" > "New" > select "New Folder" and enter a meaningful name of the new contact list to be created. Create or copy contacts in the newly created list.Now there are 2 folders containing a list of contacts with the group "My Contacts"To create a new group of contact lists click the blue line "Add New Group". A contact-group called "New group" is added. Rename if needed.For some reason I could not create a new folder in the New Group.Drag an existing folder (contacts list from the existing contact group) to the "New Group".Now you have 2 Contact groups with one or more contact lists.

Hi there,

I have run into a huge problem. A client of mine wants to have a header and a footer that he can use as stationery through outlook. I have the 2 images designed already but am unsure how to set this up for him. Basically, he wants the header at the top (with html) then a space and a footer at the bottom. These images must also be able to resize themselves in accordance with the users screen etc. (If that makes any sense).

If ANYONE can help me out, I'd really appreciate it. Have been searching the net all morning with no luck.


Answer:Solved: Create New Stationery in Outlook 2007

Ay carumba. Don't you love assignments like this?

Welcome to the forum Sam.

If it were me, I'd create an HTML table with a row for the header, a row for the client to type in, and a row for the footer. That should be relatively simple to do and will give him an expanding amount of space to type, as opposed to guessing how much room he might need.

But for the image resizing? I'm sure there are others who know better than me, but I'm not sure you can get there from here. Unless these are emails he's only sending internally, it's impossible to know what email client the users will use - they may not even SEE the picture based on how they have their settings configured. And that doesn't even begin to address people who just get their messages through their online email or on their phones. And Outlook 2007 completely changed the way Office used to deal with HTML and CSS, so that's fun too. In the HTML emails I've created, the images don't resize so if the window is too small you get a scroll bar. I'm ok with that, but if your client isn't, maybe you can send him this article. If nothing else, it might make him understand that it's not as easy as it seems like it should be. Good luck!

There are apparently several ways to create signatures in Outlook 2007. One from Tools, Options, Mail Format, Signatures (which in my case does nothing); one from New Message, Signature, Signatures (which also does nothing); one from New Message, Insert, Signature, Signatures (which also does nothing). There are probably more ways that do not work, but these are the three I have found thus far.
From Tools, Options, Mail Format, the Signature button exists, but clicking it does not open the Signatures and Stationery dialog box.
In both other cases, Signature, Signatures does not open an email signature tab. It does nothing.

I have just noticed that when I compose an email the 'Send' 'Account' 'To' and 'Cc' buttons on the top left seem suddenly bigger than they used to be, like they have somehow been adjusted for a visually impaired user. Is there a way of changing this or am I imagining it?

Also, different topic altogther, sometimes Outlook jams up when sending email and then won't close without a Ctl-Alt-Del manouver. The icon in the sytem tray 'greys out' but Outlook is still running in the background. I have also had people tell me that even though I think and email hasn't gone they have in fact received it several times.

We are having some problems with email drafts that cannot be sent. In our case, I may have a reason but wanted another opinion.

When someone composes a new Outlook email message and they spend a long time writing the draft..Lets say 2 hours passes. When the user tries to send the message, the send button does not respond to mouse clicks. If you close the message without sending, it will give you an error (I do not remember what the error said).

We are guessing that it is because we lost connection to our Exchange server if only for a moment and than it orphaned the message. Before I take this as a final answer, I wanted to know if anyone else had seen this.

Also, is it common for Outlook and Exchange to lose connection every once in a while?

Thank you.

I have been having problems with my Outlook.  I have a Suddenlink account that am trying to connect to via POP3.  The account setup works fine, the connection test out okay, and I can even receive my email, but when I open a new mail message there is no ?send? button in the menu or next to the address fields.  The root command of ctrl+enter will not work either which leads me to believe this is not a menu issue.  When I try to setup the account on work Outlook both the send and receive works fine which leads me to believe that Suddenlink is not the problem.   I have searched Microsoft help and the internet and tried a number of different things, but nothing seems to fix the problem.  Here is a list of things that haven?t worked:1.   Resetting the Toolbars2.   Reinstalling Outlook3.   Removing all the email accounts and redoing the setup4.   Going under ?more setting? and giving my SMTP authentication5.   Setting up a new profile

I had to rebuild and reinstall my entire hard drive. Part of that process was reinstalling Outlook 2007 and bringing over my existing .pst file. I did all of that successfully and have it working. There is however one minor annoyance that I cannot seem to resolve no matter what I try. When I compose and email or reply to an email, the Send button is missing (left side of the tool bar). I have tried to add it from the menu but Send is not listed. I have deleted and re-added my email accounts and that didn't solve it. How do I get the Send button back!?

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2007 Send Button

Have you "Tested" your accounts from the "Accounts" pane, when you were setting them up?

I think that you do NOT have the any settings in the "Outgoing" servers. I have see the missing "Send" icon, because there was NO accounts set up.

Ever since I got Office 2007, Iím not able to create a new email message from another program.
For example, if I select a file in Explore and click ĎE-mail this fileí, nothing happens. It used to automatically pop up a new Outlook email message. This happens in another program as well. I can create new emails fine while in Outlook. Microsoft Exchange Server is set up as the default email type, which was the first thing we checked when this problem started. Not sure if this issue is with Outlook 2007 or Windows XP.
Hopefully this is enough info. Thanks in advance.

Hi all... Recently made the upgrade to Outlook 2007 in our Citrix farm. Experiencing this issue with non-Admin personnel:

Outlook could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

That being said, very little is found on the internet. The few solutions we have found have not worked. The user has read/write access to the folder where the temp directory is held, read/write to the temp internet files folder, and the system variables all point in valid locations with proper access for non-Admin users.

Anyone care to throw a bone out at this one?

Hi, I just thought I'd pose this question, I don't even know if it's possible.

I work at a t-shirt company and we create sheets for each order we do, showing all the sizes for each shirts, their totals, and then under that two pictures, the front of the shirt and the back.

Some of these designs we do quite a bit of and up until now the girl doing these has imported each picture by hand using corel draw and printing it out, and then filling in the totals by hand.

I thought it might be possible to create a template that lets her just type in the numbers of each size shirt that will automatically give her a total and, more importantly, I was hoping there was a way to have her be able to simply type in a letter (our t-shirt fronts are labeled by letter) of the front and have the program automatically put in the picture she was referencing when it prints out. I thought if I told excel where the pictures were and make the letter in that cell reference a specific one it would be possible. I don't know anything about excel, however, so I don't know how to go about doing it.

Is this possible? How would it be done if it is? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I created a custom template in MS Word 2010 to facilitate report creation. The template includes custom building blocks/quick parts as well as drop down lists, date fields, etc.

Two people can create a report and pass it around for others to edit/comment on and all functionality remains intact in the file. All others users are having problems with the file. Someone creates a report and when he or she sends it to the next person, the custom building blocks/quick parts are unavailable, but all other drop-down lists, date fields, etc. function correctly. I've verbally confirmed that everyone copied the template to his or her Word templates folder and everyone is using MS Word 2010.

I cannot re-create the problem. I've tested by sending samples to multiple people and no one has problems with my documents (or another person's documents). Someone sent me an affected document and I was able to reassociate the template with the document to restore functionality, but the person could not change the building blocks/quick parts in the file I sent back. I talked the person through the process and he was able to do the same thing I did (Developer tab -> Document template -> attach template) and then the file was fully functional for him. I'm at a loss as to what is causing this problem. Has anyone else encountered this or anything similar?

Answer:MS Word 2010 Custom Template Trouble

Thanks for your reply. None of the pre-prepared templates were adequate for the type of report template I created (it was very specific and necessitated customization).

HI guys I need to create a template of our letterhead in office

why do we need to do this?
This is so we can create a PDF invoice or general letter and email it. We are using Flash paper to convert files to PDF

We have 2 letterheaded papers, 1 is the mane letter head and the other is a continuation sheet.

What I want is to create a template in office 2003, when using this temaplet if I write an invoice and go past the first page. Office automatically adds the second page "continuation letter head" and continue to do so for as many pages I add.

So basically the first page should be the Letterhead and every page after should be the continuation sheet.

The letter head and the continuation sheet look very similar except the continuation sheet does not repeat our address phone numbers and so on.

Can you please help.

Can you help me with this problem?

When I create a Custom Template Order Form in MS WORD, if you hit the ENTER KEY (carriage return key), it adds an extra line of space to my form, making it longer than needed. If you continue to use the Enter Key, you can add infinite number of additional lines of space to the form which is exactly what I don't need. My template takes up the entire 8 1/2 x 11 form that I have designed and I want the form to remain no larger than 8 1/2 x 11 even after the form is filled out by the recipient.

Is there a way to disable the Enter Key from this form? The Tab Key is used to tab from field to field.

Your help would be sincerely appreciated.


Answer:Problem with Custom Template Form in MS Word

Place your form fields into tables.
Set the height of the table row to EXACTLY. Then, they can type all day long, but the text will just disappear below the visible part of the table row.

Form fields also have character limitations.

The only way to disable the Enter key is to use macro code. If macros aren't enabled, this solution won't work anyway. The above is the best workaround.

Is it possible to create a new folder template? As a working musician, the standard music template is not functional for what I do. However, I don't want to change the standard music template as it IS functional for pre-recorded music, which I also have on this machine.

So I need a NEW folder template where I can keep my professional music files.

How is that done in Windows 7?

Hi RadicalDad And welcome

I don't think what you are trying to do is possible.The best workaround would be to set up one of the pre set templates to how you want it and use that, or if your professional files are on a separate drive set the whole drive up to the configuration you want.

Good morning,
I've been doing some research and can't seem to find an answer. I want to create an email template/form in Outlook 2003 but I want to have placeholders, or fill-in boxes, when I select this template. I send out a specific email nearly every day, where only a few sections change, and instead of typing the entire thing every day or just modifying a previously sent email, I would like to be able to open this template, fill in the spots, and hit send. Just for example, in the subject line when the template opens, I would like it to say "Good afternoon, [Name], today is [Date]." When [Name] or [Date] is clicked on, it turns into a slot you can fill in. Is there any way to make this happen? Preferrably without going into VBA Thanks in advance!

Open a new message, type the contents you want in there, then within the message window, click "Save As" (instead of "Send"), and click the drop-down for file type, and choose the one for "Template", then give it a name and location (such as your desktop), then click "Save".

Now, you just need to go to your desktop and click the template file, make a few changes, then click to send the message.

Hi, Ive been trying to get the following to work:-
1) Monitor a user session based counter on many deployed machines
2) To alert when that counter hits some defined value.
This may sound simple, and it is when you create the Alert manually on the machines when the user is logged on, but the problem is when you try and do this for multiple users who log onto that machine. The issue I found is that when you choose the WMI Counter,
and select 'ALL SESSIONS' it doesnt actually do that, but just selects all current session it can 'see' to include in the monitor. This looks to only be an issue when you create it as an Alert though, as when you create it as a Performance Counter Data Log
it will work and record all session information. In fact you can see what I mean by simply creating two examples using the Processor Counter.
1) Create a new Data Collector Set from Performance Monitor
2) Select to create manually
3) Choose 'Create data logs - Performance counter'
4) Select Processor and Instances of selected object to be 'All instances'
5) You will see it lists this as \Processor(*)\* as the performance counter

1) Select to create manually
2) Choose 'Performance Counter Alert' this time

Answer:Word 2007 Template with sections

If you have a document that you want to use as a template, all one needs to do is a Save As" ans select that it be saved as a template.

As for headers and footers within a sectioned document, each section can have or not a header/footer which can be different. The properties of the header/footer can be set for continous (Previous) which means from this section on to the end of document.

I use Vista with Word 2007. I was given instructions from a company to install their template, which included changing a mccomct2.ocx file, then disabling the UAC, and unregistering the control and then registering it again.

When I put in the information for the template, I receive an error message 5941 with a row of question marks underneath.

Can anyone tell me what is going wrong? Thanks in advance,

I am using the template available from 2007, but I want to have a list of tasks that get done every month, but they may be done each month by a different person. I can't seem to re-use a common task. Does anyone know how to do this?

Answer:Access 2007 Project template

marilyn934, welcome to the Forum.
I never use Templates as I prefer to start from scratch with what the users need, so I don't know what the template does or how it does it.
Does it use a form or report and is it based on a query?

I've installed Office 2007 but have one query about templates in Word 2007.I have set up my normal.docx and normal.docm and my settings appear when I open a new document by opening Word 2007 itself, or by selecting a New Blank Document from Word's file menu. Fine, no problem.However, if I create a 'New Microsoft Office Word Document' by right clicking in a folder, the document created has the original default Word 2007 template and not my customised normal.docx.Any ideas on what I may have done wrong, or is it a glitch in Word 2007?Are there any MS Office forums that may know the answer?Regards,Ray D

I just got the new 2007 version of word and am trying to figure out how to change the default settings on my word docs. I have searched everywhere on the internet including the microsoft website. I have found several people who have the same problem but not one answer on how to fix it (that has worked). I have tried all suggestions, including changing the default on each individual heading, ie font, paragraph, etc. (and saving the doc), changing the style default (and saving the doc), going into Manage Styles and clicking on the restrict button (P.S. It won't allow me to), and changing the Word template for all word docs (and saving the doc template). Even though, the template shows the changes I want when I go into it, each new document still reverts to the calibri 11pt font with multiple spacing and lines. I have done everything that people are saying to do and not one of the suggestions are working. Does anyone have an answer to this problem?

If you do, I'll kiss you!!

I am using Access 2007 and modifying it for my own purposes. In this case it is to replace my current excel file as a database for storing client details. One of the most useful functions of the tempalte is that you can export contact details to outlook at the click of a button, I would however like to expand on this in the below two ways:

1. I have user-created contact fields in my current Outlook contact can I get Outlook to update these as well, currently it only updates standard fields such as last name, first name etc.
2. Currently it only allows me to export one contact to Outlook at a time, can I have it export all the contacts in my Access 2007 database at once. I.e. if i make changes to multiple contacts instead of doing it one by one I would like to do it in one go and then just use the 'update contact details' function in Outlook.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Answer:Access 2007 Contacts template, help required....

Why not just use OUTLOOKS import and export feature.

In Outlook 2007 (or 2003) Goto File>Import and Export

Follow the wizards instructions
(Note: Office 2007 is wierd... SOMETIMEs Microsoft is slow in delivering the updates to resolve compatibility issues so you MAY find it useful to save your excell or access file as an earlier version if 2007)

Happy Holidays!

Running Office 2007. Have made a template for a client that features VB (not legacy) CheckBoxes, ComboBoxes, and TextBoxes. The template is a one page document with tables; the client (a dental surgeon) enters patient name and date, checks various boxes about patient condition/recommendations for treatment, selects text from combo boxes. Auto text will also be included.

The problem: The template takes up to 60 seconds to load on his machine (New Dell, 1Gb RAM, NTFS, Office 2003). I save the template in "compatibility mode" on my machine (P4 2.8 Ghz 1Gb FAT32). Also, the template takes about 10-15 seconds to load on my machine.

How can I speed it up? Is it a compatibility issue?

How can I rectify changes I mistakenly made on the MSOffice 2007 Word blank template. I have already reinstalled the whole Office program hoping the opening blank document would revert to its original template format. I have literally spent hours attempting to reverse the process, but with no success. By changing the oringinal I've saved a useless template that mimics the wrong blank document every timeit opens. I've run MS Office Diagnostics, (no help), I have no idea how I saved it as the normal template.
I feel it has something to do with the new, bright and very Large text Styles that I just had to play with.
The changes are: On opening new document it has eight paragraph marks down the page and, the final insult, each new document when opened is named Document4.

I need to create a template in Word 2007 which will enable me to subsequently print out letters to the members of my association. If it was for only the headers and footers, it would have been fine. But what I need is :

1. A header with the name of the association, its president and secretary

2. A footer with the address for correspondence

3. A side bar on the left side listing all the members of the executive committee.

This last one is difficult to incorporate. I wanted something like a header/footer in the left margin so that when I open a new document based on this template, the cursor should not even for moment go into that side bar of the members' list.

Does anyone know how to do this?
