    time I've seen this - haven't had a problem with this until now. Any

  2. Are you using Outlook 2003?

    I would suggest clearing your Outlook forms cache to see if that eliminates
    the error. You might also need to restart Outlook.

    To clear your forms cache from the main Outlook window, select "Tools |
    Options | Other | Advanced Options... | Custom Forms... | Manage Forms... |
    Clear Cache". The Forms Manager should display the list of forms that are

    If you still see the error, you might also need to delete the old forms from
    within the Forms Manager and then restart Outlook. If that fails to solve
    the problem, close Outlook and repair BCM from "Control Panel | Add/Remove

    Thanks Clinton - I'll keep these notes for future but it didn't fix the
    current problem. I am using Outlook 2003. I did clear the cache as you
    suggested and restarted Outlook. I did the repair and I'm still getting the
    message that BCM couldn't initialize the form on the 'General' page tab. I
    can access the 'Detail' tab and the info comes up. I can access the
    information from the General page by using the tool bars at the top. Any

    Hi raul

    You answered a post/query with the same title for a girl called tracy dated feb 2nd 2007 - i can't find a ref.

    i have the same/similar problem but your successful answers to her don't work for me. Any suggestions? I posted my own post (under outlook) with this same title on Aug 10th at 8.46pm (1.46 am here!!). full details are on it or get back to me for more

    hope you get well paid for this :)
