Custom forms are dialog boxes that display Microsoft Project fields for data entry. Don't confuse custom forms with built-in form views such as the Task Entry view. Form views are built in to Microsoft Project and show a set of predetermined fields. On the other hand, custom forms are like dialog boxes that you create. You specify the fields of information you want on the form, where they are to be placed, and how they are accessed.
To use a custom form, you first select the tasks or resources you want to edit with the form. Then you open the form and enter values into the fields. When you click OK on the form, the changes are applied to the selected tasks or resources, and the form disappears. ™
