I created a new custom (contact) form and assigned it as the default to a new contact folder.  But when importing data from an Access data base into my new folder I do not see my new fields listed for mapping and when the data imports in and I open a contact it is using the Outlook default contact form not my Custom form.  How do I import this data and use my custom form?

The Import/Export wizard doesn't have a way of handling custom fields.  For an idea or two around the process, check out http://www.slipstick.com/dev/customimport.htm.
