    Hey guys and gals,

    As a member here for three years or so, I've finally figured out this is a forum for macs specifically... (jk)

    Despite this, I know many of you are proficient in the use of Windows and many here use Windows during their day jobs. Because of this, I think this might be a good place to ask this question.

    I'm trying to create an Outlook Message that I can reuse week after week, but with different information. It needs to have a common format, but I need to change the data to the right of the catagories every week. Because of this, I was initially thinking I needed a template. While this sounds like it would work, I'm having a bit of a problem; I want to have different text fields that I can tab through and add information that way.

    For example: Two fields in this email message will be

    Zip Code:


    What I need to be able to do is type in the zip code, press tab, and be able to type in the state without using my mouse. How do I do this within a template? Can anyone give me any help with this?

    Umm, I'm not 100% sure on that. But, have you ever tried Thunderbird? It is MUCH easier to use than Outlook.

    I'd set up a word document to edit, then copy/paste it to Outlook.

    Are you saying that you can do that in Thunderbird?

    I'm guessing this might be his work computer and he doesn't have a choice.

    I'm not 100% sure if this is what you're looking for, but you might want to take a look at forms in Outlook. My knowledge on forms is extremely limited, but it might be a step in the right direction
