Normally Outlook creates an event for a contact's birthday (unless you imported the contact - in that case you can get the event created by editing the contact & saving it). Open the event in the calendar folder and add a reminder to it. I usually set the important ones to remind me 2 weeks in advance (time to buy card & gift)

Is there a way to edit all of the contacts at once with microsoft access 2000/ 97?  I would like to do this to change things quicker than going through outlook's pointing and clicking interface hundreds of times.
Not in Access.... but you can create a table view of your contacts in Outlook then go down the list to do your editing. It's pretty quick (make sure you have in-cell editing turned on in the view)
