Outlook Contacts in Access
Automatically set up links to data outside of Access.
It still works in Access/Outlook '07.
The changes made in Access will be reflected in Outlook and vice versa.
If you want to create a new database that will link to other data that isn't in an Access format, you can do it quickly.
The classic way is to use the File>Get External Data >Link Tables method.
However you can simply choose File >Open from the menu bar.
Select the appropriate data format from the Files Of Type dropdown list
(such as Microsoft Excel (*.xls)).
Open the file and Access will automatically create an MDB file with the same name as the data source you selected and will set up links to the data.
From there you can develop forms, queries and reports.
