Link Up in Outlook
Let's get hyper
There can be more to creating a link than just typing the address
Any Internet address that you type into an Outlook message or other item becomes a hotlink that other Outlook users can use to get quickly to that resource.
Outlook folders and items can also be added as hyperlinks in messages and other items.

When you use the Outlook as a source for addresses, you can customize the display to suit your own needs.
When you use the Insert Address button in the Envelopes and Labels dialog box it does not use the same format as the Insert Address button.
Here's the location to put the Address book on the Quick Access Toolbar in 2007:
Here's the work around:
Insert Address Button Does Not Use AddressLayout AutoText Entry
MacroButton; scroll down to Insert Address from Outlook>
Here are two sources with directions about how to reformat the AutoText entry: "AddressLayout".

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.
