Link Contacts Data in Public Folder from SQL Server

I have a view in SQL server that shows basic information for my company's contacts -- name, address, phone number, and so on. I want to link this data to a public contacts folder in Exchange so it is available in a "read only" form to everyone in our office using outlook. Any ideas?

You will need to create a public folder with a custom form that you will have to program yourself (or hire somebody to do it).

Check out http://www.outlookcode.com/d/database.htm for more information, and http://www.microsoft.com/accessdev/articles/av9709.htm for more in-depth information on programming using ADO.
