    Link Existing Access Database to Outlook Contacts


    I keep all my contacts in Microsoft Outlook and use an Access Database to log call reports. Currently I am having to type in contact information in both areas, but would like it to link so I only have to do it once.

    I have used the 'Import' from 'Outlook Folder' wizard under 'Get External Data' to create a linked table. However, my outlook contacts are not showing up in the database under 'Companies'. There are several different forms in this database.

    Can someone please help me with this? I attached the access database.

    You can import from access to load Outlook contacts but I am not sure if there is a way to link these two. If you find a way, please let me know b/c I use outlook the same way. I just import every so often which works but there has to be a simpler method of maintaining and updating contact information.

    Linking Access Database with Outlook

    I found this helpful. I also opened a new template database from the Access templates called Contact Manager to practice importing the contacts from Outlook. Once I got the hang of it I imported and linked my outlook contacts to my database. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/he...165811033.aspx

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
