    I am using Access 2007 and modifying it for my own purposes. In this case it is to replace my current excel file as a database for storing client details. One of the most useful functions of the tempalte is that you can export contact details to outlook at the click of a button, I would however like to expand on this in the below two ways:

    1. I have user-created contact fields in my current Outlook contact can I get Outlook to update these as well, currently it only updates standard fields such as last name, first name etc.


    2. Currently it only allows me to export one contact to Outlook at a time, can I have it export all the contacts in my Access 2007 database at once. I.e. if i make changes to multiple contacts instead of doing it one by one I would like to do it in one go and then just use the 'update contact details' function in Outlook.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Why not just use OUTLOOKS import and export feature.

    In Outlook 2007 (or 2003) Goto File>Import and Export

    Follow the wizards instructions
    (Note: Office 2007 is wierd... SOMETIMEs Microsoft is slow in delivering the updates to resolve compatibility issues so you MAY find it useful to save your excell or access file as an earlier version if 2007)
