Where do I get a complete list of field names for use in Outlook Contacts?  The challenge is that the field names will be used in Access and then the data may be exported to Outlook down the road.  I have got about 80% of the names figured out but I can't seem to find acceptable field names for Assistant's name and number, nickname.  The other problem is that all fields must be text before exporting them to Outlook.  What about date fields...can I send them over without converting them to text?

Do it the other way around to get a complete list of field names for use in Outlook Contacts.  Go to Contacts in Outlook and export them to an Access file:

[File,Import and Export, Export to a file, Microsoft Access, highlight "Contacts", choose location]

Open the new Access file in Access and you have all the file names.
