I am programming Outlook using VBA and I want to know if I can have a live connection to a SQL table through custom fields.
I have about 25,000 contacts that I need to have available to network users at a reasonable speed.
Is this possible?

You can write a class in the VBA project that retrieves data, and make it available to a form.

You could also write a COM addin that does the same thing (only it will be faster as it is precompiled), or you could use a Custom Form that queries the SQL database using ADO to fill a listbox.

There are some courses you can go on to learn about this - I'm currently sitting in one that is being taught by an excellent presenter...   1593A - Developing Collaborative Solutions Using Outlook2000...

Set Lst1 = ExpPages("Message").Controls("LstBox")

set conn = Application.CreateObject("adodb.connection")

conn.ConnectionTimeOut = 180
conn.open "dsnName","username","pasword"
set rsDetail= Application.CreateObject("adodb.recordset")
set rsDetail=conn.execute("select login_fullname,login_email from inetusers where Login_Level=50")

Do Until RSdetail.EOF
  Lst1.additem rsDetail.Fields("Login_Email")
rSdetail.MoveNext
Loop

this little code connect to an sql database, make a select and fill and listbox with the email of person in the db
