    my client i am working with is having the same problem. when he tries to open the omniform.exe to get to his reports it comes up with an erro stating "Unable to locate a file needed to continue. (C:\Caere\Omniform Filler\Omnifill.dat)" so i then go to the address to see if it is even there and it is, i saw there was a omnifill.exe so i tried to launch that exe to see if anything would happen, and it did not do anything. it wouldn't load or show it was trying to load.

For my Client he needed administrator rights to his account on my companies network. i tried having him as a power user that did not work, he needed administrator rights. once he had those rights, he was able to work in Omniform; even though it said that error i had told you all about when he was a Remote user\user.

I use Omniform 4.0 for OCR document storage in Windows Vista. I am having trouble emailing these docs as an attachment to Windows Mail. What do I have to do to be able to email these documents this way?

First off, I assume that you know that Omniform is a database program. We use it at my work, and everyone believes that it is just a way of filling out a form and printing it. Everything that is entered is saved in a database (usually hidden) and is then accessbile through the form.

Now that's out of the way. To email a form, you will have to add the actual .ofm file as an attachment, and mail it to your recipient. They will have to also have omniform to open the file.

Your other option is to export the form fields (from the file>export menu in omniform). It'll give you a little hassle about deciding on which fields to export, and how you want them exported (MS excel, dbase, ect). Once you export them, they will be in a matching filetype (ie .xls or whatever you exported them as) format. Add this file as an attachment, and sent it through your mail to your recipient.

I know this all seems like a bit of a pain, but honestly, Omniform is a great program. I've used it for 6 years, and had very few problems with it. Word to the wise, its easier to just attach your .ofm files and send them as email, rather than using the build in "sent to mail recipient" that is built into the omniform program.

Let me know if you have any further questions. This is one program that i've had to take apart, reassemble, build forms, ect for numerous people.

Good Luck
