#1: Make sure that you have the Outlook 98 field mapping patch from http://officeupdate.microsoft.com/downloadDetails/field98.htm. This will let you specify which Outlook field is to hold the data from which Access field.

#2: Check whether you have enough Outlook fields for the Access fields you want to import. (Outlook does not allow you to import directly to custom Outlook fields, but there are other methods. See http://www.slisptick.com/dev/customprint.htm.)

Once you've taken care of #1 and #2, use the File | Import and Export command in Outlook and follow the wizard steps, taking care to map the fields, rather than accept the default mapping.

I downloaded the field mapping patch, but the other address would not work that would help me with other methods of importing directly to custom Outlook fields.
