Outlook Forms 5 - Add Currency and Description

Add Currency and multi-line text field to Outlook form

Use label control for creating fields for the right type. Modify properties for multi-line.

Use Field Chooser to create a new field called CheckAmount, type is Currency; select the correct format from the drop down. Drag this new Check Amount object onto the workspace; again this will give me two items. A text box and a label. Open properties for the text box and name it txtCheckAmount. This is a required field on my form. I want all required fields to be Bold so I click on the font button and select bold.

On the label I select properties for the Name, Caption (again this is the text you see on the screen), and I make it bold using the font button

Next I add the description field in Field Chooser leaving the type as Text and the format as Text. I place the field on the workspace and I drag the text box bigger because I want to be able to have room to type a description regarding this check request.

I open properties on the text box and name it but I also check Multi-line so that more then one line of text can entered into this text box.

Edit the label as I have done before.

I now have something similar to what you see below:

Go To Outlook Forms 6
