Using Visual Basic 5 with an mdb file holding the data. I need to link to directly, or import into the underlying access mdb file, an Outlook98 folder.  

Using Access97, there is an add-in that you can download from the microsoft web site to achieve this.

But I have not been able to find a similar tool for use with VB.  I'm pretty new to VB so need a complete solution to this question.

How do I achieve this from within VB.

any ideas

The article didn't really help too much.  But it did lead me on to a couple of other leads and I eventually found an alternative way of achieving what I wanted.

Thanks very much for your help.
