For this example I have referenced DAO 3.5 and the msoutl85.olb file. There is a help file available (confusing though) called VBAOUTL.HLP wich is on the msoffice CD. Notify me if you want more info.

    Dim oApplic As Object
    Dim oItem As Object
    Dim olNameSpace As Object
    Dim DB As Database
    Dim SQL As String
    Dim I As Integer
       
    'connect to access database
    Set DB = OpenDatabase(App.Path & "\MyDB.mdb")
   
    'connect to the Outlook tasks
    Set oApplic = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Set olNameSpace = oApplic.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set oItem = olNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderTasks)
   
    'get the outlook tasks and insert access database
    For I = 1 To oItem.Items.Count
        SQL = "Insert into AccessTasks (TaskName) select '" & oItem.Items(I) & "'"
        DB.Execute SQL
    Next I
