Adding an OLE bounded field to the Contact form in Outlook 2000
Posted on 2000-03-17
A user is able to customize any form in oulook. He can add, remove controls as he wishes. He can also add other OCX controls to the tool box.
That toolbox contains an Image control.
I would like to add a picture of my contact in the form using the Image control or any other OCX control.
Unfortunately, when it's time to define what field the control will be bound to, there is no choice but to use text, numerical, boolean or date/time type field.
This is crucial for me because if I cannot bind the control to a field that cant host images, I end up with the same picture for everyone.
Does anyone know how to circumvent that limitation? Did I miss something?
PS: I know I can do this easily in Access. But I really need to do this in outlook 2000.
Thanx in advance
