Hi all, I'm trying to work out if I am able to get a combo box to work within an Outlook signature? Is this possible? I can create a combo box within Word and then copy and paste it into Message in outlook and it works fine but when I try and copy and paste it into an Outlook signature it won't work when I use that signature. Basically what I'm trying to do is create a template (which has information that needs to be recorded in our system) that everyone within my workplace can use for when we get a request from a customer for a quote. For example it would look a bit like this:
Customer

Due date

Industry

Estimator
So, we would get a customer email us asking for a quote. We would forward that email to a central person within our company that enters this information into our system making a quote number etc. The email that is being forwarded will usually have PDF files attached to it and other information within the email itself. I wanted to try and make a template that can be used when forwarding that email on. So I figured out that I can use a signature to automatically add text to an email (message). One of my co-workers would just select the relevant signature and fill in the required information. Which I though would be pretty easy and more likely to be followed long term. The only problem is that I wanted to put a drop down box as one of the choices to restrict what could be chosen. But as I said above I can't seem to get it to work. If anyone know how to get this to work or another method I could use to achieve the same thing that work be great. Thanks, Dillon.
