I can't seem to find a member of any class in OL VBA that will import files into OL 2000!!!  Is this method not supported in OL VBA???

My main goal is to program OL so that when [a button?] is executed OL will go to a contacts MDB and import the data to the contacts folder.

Has anyone found a way to do this?

Sorry, the Import/Export wizard is not exposed in the Outlook automation object.  Only workaround is to write your own VBA code that can open your Access database and import the items.

I think http://www.slipstick.com/dev/database.htm or http://www.slipstick.com/dev/customimport.htm this link might help.
