I want to create a hyperlink in Outlook, oh no, not any hyperlink, but one that is able to Open a Form inside of an Access database. First of all is this possible? and if Yes, HOW?

programmatically....

user clicks a button or label and your click event does something like....

set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
objNamespace.Logon "","", False, False

set colItems = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(4).Items
set objMsg = colItems.Add ("IPM.Note.Custom.Message.Class.Company")
objMsg.Display
set objMsg = Nothing
set colItems = Nothing
objNamespace.Logoff
Set objNamespace = Nothing
Set objOutlook = Nothing

That is not what I am trying to do. I want to be inside of Outlook, and have a hyperlink in Outlook that opens a form in my Access database.

Then you would do something like this in VBScript behind an Outlook form.

Dim oAccess
Set oAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")
oAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\database\TestDatabase.mdb"
oAccess.DoCmd.OpenForm "Test Form"
oAccess.Visible = True
