    newbie needs help with extracting outlook

    Hi guys

    just started using access, I am hoping to get much better at it. I have tried searching the forum for an answer but either because I am a noob or it may not be there, I cannot seem to find an answer, just alot of dead links.

    I have been able to extract data from outlook using new data source > outlook folder >...

    One of the fields generated is "Has Attachments" but it does not list the attachment name.

    Is there anyway to get Access to display the names of the various attachments, and if possible provide a hyperlink to the attachment? I have been able to download all the attachments into a local drive. If I could connect the attachment file( in the local drive) to the database that would be sweet.

    I think VBA will be required to access email attachments and download to a folder location. Save this filepath as text in a field.

    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.

    - "doesn't work" doesn't help. Implement changes in copies of your database.
