Hello all,

I am using Office 2003 (and MS Exchange 2003). I make use of the public folders to manage office contact lists.

My goal: To create Excel templates where I am able to pull real-time (or nightly synchronized, if not real time) drop-down lists of the fields in those contact folders.

I understand drop-down lists in Excel are easy to do if you want to manually enter the options in each cell, but I ultimatelly hope to have that cell point to options in a certain field in an outlook contact that exists on my exchange 2003 public folder.

Is there a way to establish a direct link between the two? Is there some scripting that would be necessary to "synchronize" from Outlook to a data file that can be pulled in by Excel?

Thank you for any and all advice and direction.
Brian
