I imported an Access 2000 Table into Outlook 2000. One of my fields is a memo field. I couldn't find a corresponding Outlook field to map it to. So i created on in Outlook called Memo. The I reimported it, mapping Access Memo field to Outlook Memo field. But I can't find this in Outlook???

am I doing something wrong?

I would have mapped it to antother field, but I fingured there is a size limit perhaps.

Outlook does not support importing to custom fields. The large Outlook field you were looking for is the Body property. Try mapping to that.

I didn't find a Body field, but I put it into the Notes field and it seems to work. I needed it for getting it onto my Palm/CE
