    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
    a business card is displayed above it. Looking at properties for my contacts folder the form used is IPM.Contact, the standard Contacts form in all versions of Outlook.

    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.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Problem solved. In Outlook 2007 forms have a custom 'themed' look however this themed look is not available to custom forms.
    This can be overcome by using form 'regions' new to Outlook 2007. Full details are available under the 'developer' section of the online help.
